Challenges and solutions

To meet the requirement of large clearances, we designed the building with a 9m eave height, high roller shutters and sliding doors to allow for easy machinery access.

Our Building Design Team collaborated closely with Buildspec Construction to ensure overhead gantry cranes and cantilever canopies were located for maximum practicality and workshop efficiency.

We designed and value-engineered the external, angled façade to support architectural elements including large glazed areas and voids in the mezzanine.
