Methwold Commercial Developments Case Study

Methwold Workshops development.
The owner of this small commercial industrial estate has used us on a number of occasions for planning, building regulations and construction, for various new builds.
The site was a former WWII RAF base and before that a large country house site on the site, but today is surrounded by mature trees. Unknown to the client the area had potential contamination issues and drainage issues. These investigations and issues were easily addressed as part of our service.
This commercial project involved the detailed design and construction of a portal framed vehicle workshop for a well established specialist mechanic that required not only new work space for repair and maintenance of the vehicles but a new office and customer reception and waiting area.
The client came to us with a basic design and it was our job to guide them through the process of building regulations, environmental safety and energy efficiency. The workshop was constructed by Clayland Estates and the close working relationship with our sister company ensured issues on site were addressed quickly and effectively.
Industrial Unit – we were again asked to help with planning and contamination issues for a new storage warehouse. The client had initial sketch designs which we modified and updated to bring them up to standard for planning submission, building regulations and construction. We also worked closely with the steel frame manufacturer throughout the design process.
This was to provide an extension to create new offices space and refurbish the existing commercial space for a kitchen company. From the client initial we provided a detailed design for planning approval and building regulations, including fire safety auditing.
