Challenges and solutions
The workshop design required easy access points for cars to enter and leave the building at different places, so we designed the building to accommodate this. We also needed to ensure there was enough space for the different sections in the workshop.
The building needed to join onto the existing concrete panel wall from the factory next door. This provided a value engineering opportunity to remove a row of columns and footings down one side.
The building height also needed to accommodate vehicle hoists being used inside, so we engineered the UB rafters to allow for large clearance heights needed inside the workshop.
“We’re very pleased with our new premises, the building is designed specifically for our business needs and is a premium quality structure.”
