Tackling the Project Management and Design Issues
Commercial projects require strong project management. Depending on the your needs we can undertake feasibility studies, design, application for planning approval, build-ability packages, and on-site monitoring.
Variety of usage
Within the ICE Arch Ltd team there is a broad range of experience - speculative office and mixed-use developments, industrial units, hotel and leisure facilities, bar and restaurant development. Each type of project has its own priority considerations. Design of catering and retail facilities, for example, places great emphasis on the design of interior layouts and must accommodated the varying needs of staff, customers and clients.
Refurbishment of shops and bars presents significant constraints on working times and projects must be carefully planned to minimise disruption to business operations. Large-scale commercial projects often have rigid time-scales which must be matched to planning authority cycles.
Specialist facilities such as dental and medical premises add security and infection control to other important design considerations.
Developer versus Operator
ICE Arch Ltd is sensitive to the difference between speculative development and projects commissioned by owners and directors of businesses.
