McVeigh Consultants provided an integrated, one-stop-shop design service for our client which resulted in high quality, aesthetically pleasing industrial spaces with a cost-effective warehouse structural design solution. This development includes 23 industrial storage units, ranging from 45m2 to 194m2 on a 4,000m2 industrial estate.

The site presented challenges in the ground work with rocky ground conditions, leading to a potential cost and risk to the client. Through coordination and a structured contract and conditions with the contractor, McVeigh were able to mitigate the risk for the client and ensure that the most appropriate solutions were chosen by the contractor when excavating the site.

Fire rating issues in the rear facing industrial units along the adjacent boundary of the site were resolved through careful coordination and research into alternative solutions with the fire engineer. Management and consistent communication with the subconsultants throughout the project delivered an industrial estate that was completed on budget for the client.
