Homes or commercial premises are build to order for a particular client – whether this happens to be a private individual, company or the public sector (ie local authority and housing association homes).
Plenty of expertise comes in to the construction of a building. Architects, designers, engineers and project managers are all employed to assess their particular niche, while logistics, budget and health & safety must also be considered.Even when it’s completed the building has to receive approval under local authority planning guidelines and government sustainability targets.
The location of the construction project can also have a big impact since often it’s required to ‘fit in’ with exisiting structures. This often means modifying the materials used, particularly on the façade of a building.
