The ORS Civil Structural Team is constantly evolving to the changing demands of the market. This is reflected in two of our key specialist services, Modular Building and Design and Build.
Modular building is a relatively new way of construction. More common in the US for many years, it is increasingly adopted across Europe. It offers quick and lower-cost options by constructing sections of a building away from the building site.
At ORS we offer advice in two areas:
- We help end-user clients to assess the modular options relevant to their projects. As highly experienced chartered engineers, we understand the differences in materials, complexities in construction, lead time and the multiple variables applicable. Our advice is objective and based on 30 years’ experience working in the construction sector. From the outset, we advise on what modular option is best and in some cases, whether it is the appropriate route to take for the project at all. We ask that clients talk to us at the early stage of any project, to ensure that the most cost-effective and appropriate solutions are chosen.
- There is an increasing number of modular manufacturers. Our breadth of experience in the construction industry across multiple, complex projects, combined with our deep understanding of building materials, allows us to advise manufacturers about the client and industry needs. We know the differences in requirements, suitable materials needed and their application. Our expert advice minimises the learning curve for the modular manufacturer, allowing them to get straight to development for their clients.
The ORS Civil Structural Team has worked on numerous large residential schemes, both public and private sector. We work with architects and developers on leading commercial projects in sectors such as pharmaceutical, manufacturing and industrial.
As a multidisciplinary firm, ORS is in a position to introduce in-house specialists from other areas including project management, environmental, fire safety, energy management, health and safety, infrastructure and surveying.
Design and Build
The Design and Build method of project delivery allows for a single contractor to provide design and construction services. It ensures a unified flow of work from initial concept through to completion.
The ORS Civil Structural Team approach offers clear communication, specialist experience and use of cutting edge design technology to ensure we are an effective and solution-focused partner on your design and build team. We operate under a highly formalised structure, which means you can speak to one project coordinator at all stages, at any time.
If you are a client with a development opportunity and you wish to know more about the design and build approach or are a contractor considering appointing a design team to form part of your team, please contact us.
In addition to our design experience, you will need other support services such as in health and safety and building certification. As a multidisciplinary firm, ORS is in a position to introduce in-house specialists to advise on relevant materials, certification, solutions and cost options.
Our experts are from areas including assigned certifier, project management, environmental, fire safety, energy management, health and safety, infrastructure and surveying.
