McVeigh have a wealth of experience in bulky goods storage projects, and understand that the future operational functionality of this facility had a direct impact on our clients
bottom line. We therefore ensured we understood all aspects of the business operations, from the number of deliveries expected per day to how many forklift charge points  were required.

 

The current layout was scrutinised by numerous key members of our clients team, and the documented scheme accounted for intricate logistics and maximised site development potential. McVeigh understood that as owner occupiers, this project was not only a workplace but also a long term investment for stakeholders. We selected the most suitable and durable materials for the construction, whilst keeping minimal maintenance and cost a priority.

 

We also understood that safety was of an upmost importance and priority to the client, therefore we ensured that safety in design was both a major factor in shaping the final designs and was monitored and reported on throughout the process.

 

The cost saving measures table demonstrates the benefits of having architects, civil and structural engineers under one roof. The total construction dollars we identified in just our own disciplines alone totalled $2.2m; around 9.5% of the estimated construction budget.
