Architecture

We are focused on industrial process buildings, with a core business around food manufacturing, chill stores and cold stores. We also have extensive experience in ‘energy from waste’, waste recycling, and heavy engineering including ship building.

By default, many of our commissions include offices, canteens and restaurants, warehousing and distribution.

Every commission is different, but many follow the following sequence: -

  • Preparation of an early feasibility study to assess project scope, budget and programme and used to back up a Capex application.
  • Site finding, site analysis and comparison, and utility availability - We maintain a data base of vacant food factories.
  • Building design in sufficient detail to apply for and negotiate Planning Permissions.
  • Preparation of detailed construction drawings to enable competitive tenders to be sought.
  • Contract Administration of a building contract between client and builder.
  • We are at Level 1 3D BIM (Building Information Modelling) including file based collaboration as required.
