BBH were commissioned by RGC to explore the possibilities of enlarging their warehousing and showroom facilities without interrupting the day to day business of the builders yard. It was agreed that there was potential to erect a steel frame over and through the existing building in order to add a first floor showroom accommodation. This could be done once the ceiling was installed without interrupting the business of the ground floor builders yard which could carry on during construction.
The idea was to create as versatile a space as possible so a large portable steel frame with simple insulated steel cladding in order to create one large warehouse space that they could then fit out and adjust and tailor to suit their needs over the next few years of their business development.
As part of the overall proposals we were able to rework the ground floor once the first floor was up and running in order to enable deliveries, orders and processing materials more efficient and subsequently the business is growing from strength to strength in its Townstal location.
