Steel framed buildings design and build
With over 30 years’ experience in structural steelwork and building construction we deliver our services across a wide range of market sectors encompassing every aspect of steel frame building construction for commercial, industrial, agricultural and equestrian use.
With our experience, we are able to provide cost-effective, quality designs for our clients, giving attention to detail often overlooked by others. We know that detail matters as it’s this detail that brings a project to completion on time and within budget. We routinely partner a select list of associated sub-contractors ensuring polished site coordination and peace of mind for the client that any issues will be immediately resolved. We never price in the risk associated with doubt.
Our Construction Manager has 30 years construction experience in Fit Out, Main Contracting in Retail, Commercial, Industrial sectors bringing practical construction knowledge to the team, working with our labour force to everything comes together at the right time, in the right order and at the right price.
“Our technical teams are made up of Engineers, GA Draughtsmen and Detailers working together in an open plan environment. Our Engineers are unique in that they are our Designers, Estimators and Salespeople. This provides our Clients with a single point of contact and commercial technical advice. They understand the financial consequences of design & detailing, we design to fabricate and build efficiently.”
Our GA Draughtsmen are part detectives, Project Managers and part Draughtsmen. Working up front with the Designers they work in a 3D environment to co-ordinate steelwork with associated sub-trade packages. They are information getters and information providers.
We export 3D design models from CSC Fastrak and import into our drafting package, Tekla Structures. This brings with it the structural set out, section sizes, material grades and subgrades member end reactions for connection designs and even the correct number of studs for composite design. This process speeds up the design and reduces the risk of human error in the passing of information.
“By using partnered sub-trades we have the flexibility of involving our sub-contractors in the planning process from estimate stage to on-site co-ordination.”
For each subtrade , we have preferred partnered contractors which ensures that both parties have an understanding of each others requirements throughout project development. By including sub-trades within the Nidd package, such as edge protection,
planks, decking and stairs (pc & metal), we can manage the interface between each operation to ensure that there are minimal breaks within the construction process. This also removes the co-ordination of multiple trades from the client allowing Nidd to programme delivery dates accurately giving a flexible control of start dates to suit progress on-site.
Upon completion of a contract, our sub-contractors are assessed by way of KPI’s to monitor their continued performance. These scores are reviewed with the contractor and are actioned where required. We constantly review our subcontractor’s performance ensuring that they provide a service to a level which we expect now and on the next project.
