Manufacturing space and room to expand
Built using AstronA Dove Construction design and build project, this building for engineering specialists Altex Engineering comprises, main factory area, second storey offices and an entrance foyer.
Positive experience of the high build quality and low maintenance costs of the Astron system, in previously rented premises, ensured that Altex actively sought the same system when it came to investing in their own, bespoke building.
Designed to simplify the addition of future extensions, the Astron Building System is able to be adapted to include simple, cost effective design features such as the curtain walling for the entrance foyer on this building.
Dove Construction worked closely with the client to incorporate their ideas into the building, particularly regarding the entrance foyer and the showpiece steel staircase.
The ServicePlus management approach helped cause least possible disruption to the core business of the client; it also included help in acquiring the site, conducting the accompanying land surveys and obtaining all permissions and approvals prior to starting the design and build.
