Project Brief

This building was designed and built as two units.

The first was for the owner Freedom Forklifts, who needed a purpose built mechanical workshop for their forklift business. This unit incorporates offices and amenities for the staff via a mezzanine level at the front. The workshop has one wall that opens right up with roller doors to give great access and ventilation to work area.

The rear unit was designed as a separate tenancy with its own mezzanine office and amenities.

Unfortunately, the soil test discovered very poor ground conditions so we had to adopt a screw pier system to support the building in addition to strengthening the ground slabs to accommodate the loads for industrial uses.
