Designbrook provide innovative solutions and business services to the following markets:
Our vast experience within the Residential Sector, with a great number of both new and existing Clients enables us to work alongside the Professional Team towards providing high-grade apartment buildings that deliver tranquil and spacious accommodation.
The complexity of services being demanded by the Residential Sector increases year on year as perspective buyer's put more demands on the developer to deliver a product which extends their comforts at work to their homes. The developments which we are currently involved in require us to give design solutions for Comfort Cooling, Personal Network Systems, Sophisticated Lighting Controls, Multimedia Design Solutions & Fire Safety Systems.
Our experience gained over the years has given us the ability to sit within a Professional Team giving both the Client and Architect the benefit of our valued knowledge and innovative design solutions for the ever increasing demand of the Residential market.
The scale of the developments that we are currently involved in range from 80 units up to 1,000 units including additional amenities for leisure, commercial and retail.
Designbrook, since formation, has always maintained an aggressive grip on commercial work, allowing us to bring to the commercial sector knowledge and expertise in the areas of computer networks, telephone wiring, UPS systems & generators, environmental systems and infrastructure design.
Due to the precise requirements of commercial organizations, a maximum usage has to be made of all areas. The dynamic nature of commercial projects, short-term programming and absolute commitment to meeting deadlines is essential.
Whether new or existing offices, we thrive on the challenges posed by an environmentally friendly approach. Through a thorough review of the design parameters and the proposed usage we arrive at the correct design. In the case of office refurbishments, we perform a detailed review of existing systems to see what can be retained, to maximize cost savings but at the same time keep a high standard of quality throughout the building. Maintaining operational status is a frequent requirement during this kind of work and we are noted for our ability to manage a minimum level of disruption.
We understand the expectancy of retail Clients to deliver a produce with tight budgetary constraints, which still meets the quality and standards expected of their customer base.
Retail projects that require mechanical and electrical design bring their own special problems. Lighting plays a key part in creating the required ambience for customers and flexibility in the provision of data facilities is crucial when stores need to be re-organised. Designbrook are experts in both these areas.
We know that working to tight timescales and responding to changing schedules is vital to our Clients. We understand the significant impact, any delay in meeting deliverables within the Retail Sector will have on a trading store. This is why many of our High Street Clients come to us for help with the M&E designs for their shops and stores and total Project Management of rollout schemes across their portfolio. We deliver the quality of timeliness and responsiveness they need and that is why they keep coming back to us.
Designbrook have extensive experience in the design of services for hotels. We have been commissioned to design complex schemes for heating, air-conditioning, electrical, ventilation, public health and domestic services whilst maintaining full operation of the building. Many of these properties are 'listed' which add interesting challenges to the integration of services into the existing structures.
Our leisure experience has included a number of commercial health spas and fitness studios. A key factor has been the close management of specialist contractors. In addition, we have also been involved in the design and management of a refurbishment for gaming floors and kitchens in casinos.
In the case of nightclubs, the Clients have insisted on close co-ordination of sound systems, lighting effects and mechanical & electrical services.
Our expertise are based on a wide knowledge and understanding of the various factors needed to meet Government Regulation, budget constraints and community expectations.
Our portfolio includes various projects within Community Care ranging from PPM, refurbishment and new build. In each case close attention was provided from initial Client meetings through to project completion and account valuations.
We have provided specialised Professional Services developing standard formats for Legionella testing, particularly in Public Sector buildings and ongoing maintenance service programmes. We have provided specifications, specialist engineering and Project Management Teams to oversee programmes through to completion.
Through our work with the Local Authorities we have procured works associated with the Educational Sector. Our experience has ranged from new Day Nurseries through to University sites.
