Over the last ten years the practice has expanded into this market with significant current projects in Manchester and Newcastle upon Tyne. Our experience now extends from retail park development and industrial buildings through to office accommodation.
Each sector brings its own particular challenges and in particular programming and practical solutions.
High quality office accommodation often needs to reach an excellent BREEAM rating and there is usually a requirement to expose or emphasise major structural components. Much of our industrial experience is in existing factories where bespoke solutions to the particular needs of a client to expand or change accommodation whilst not disrupting output can be challenging but rewarding.
Large retail development brings its own requirements and in particular the need to meet demanding programmes and costs.
First Choice Homes
The new offices occupy a previously developed site. A mix of fills and old foundations led to the development of a piled solution.
The scheme involved the construction of a new two storey centralised office accommodation building immediately adjacent to the main production building.
Newcastle Business School
The Practice has a long and successful working relationship with the developer of this site and the latest project is an eleven storey office block.
Stoke Bus Station
The Alan Johnston Partnership were employed by Vinci Construction UK to complete the civil & structural design for the Stoke bus station.
