We have an ongoing involvement with the RMS to provide new workshops and associated buildings across several sites and are currently assisting them with
a state-wide programme to improve vehicle circulation and pedestrian safety within their works depots.
We have also only recently completed the design and documentation of a new $15 million depot for Clarence Valley Council that included amalgamation of
5 existing depots into one large, modern, safe and efficient facility.
All of these projects have required a high level of technical expertise and an ability to solve complex space planning issues. They are testament to our
ongoing commitment to exceeding our clients expectations in all aspects of design.
The Design Process
At the beginning of the project we take the time to understand your goals, needs and desires and work hard to clarify which is which. We pay close attention
to the often very prescriptive technical aspects of industrial projects and apply our experience to test and analyse these requirements.
Our areas of design expertise include:
- Heavy Vehicle access, circulation and parking
- Safe pedestrian access to and within the site
- Heavy vehicle wash bays and garage workshops
- Warehouse storage and materials handling processes
- Administration buildings and worker amenities
- Storage requirements for hazardous materials
- Waste storage and materials handling
- Building requirements for high voltage substations
SHAC like to work closely with consultants at the early stages of the project to examine site issues such as stormwater, orientation, vegetation and topography
so that they can inform the layout and positioning of buildings on the site. We also understand the environmental issues that may be associated with
a development of this type. Impacts such as noise, odour, waste management and vehicle traffic can be controlled and minimised through thoughtful design
and consideration from the outset.
At SHAC, our aim is to not only provide a functional industrial building that meets the needs of the client, but one that is durable, low impact, sustainable,
value for money and that ultimately exceeds all expectations.
