Alpha Air, Site Survey and Feasibility Study
The proposed project was to increase the height of the existing building by extending upwards to create a two-storey unit. Mark got in touch with us as he wasn't fully satisfied with the architects he had consulted initially on the project.
Being specialists in Steel Building Design at Saxby Hatfield we were able to assist Mark following his initial call by arranging a detailed site survey and consultation. The team here have been involved in the planning, design, and construction of steel buildings for over 20 years and so we are well equipped to offer helpful and practical solutions to the design and approach that he should take.
Following the initial site survey, Simon, our Head CAD Engineer, was quickly able to construct the initial design concept into a 3D model to provide clarity. This ensured that what Mark had visualised in his head was accurate and worked in practical terms. Once Mark was satisfied with the design, the next phase was to look at the practicalities of the project. We therefore carried out a feasibility study to do just that. The report took into account the budgeted cost implications and options he would need to consider including practicalities to factor in for the project as a whole.With this understanding Mark was able to approach the proposed project in small phases with option to manage his output. We understand the need for both individuals and business owners to carefully budget and plan any large building project. Being able to offer a phased approach, the team at Saxby Hatfield Steel Building Consultants can kick start your project at your own pace. A huge benefit for those looking to establish if a prosed project or idea is viable.
