As companies experience growth, a prominent challenge arises in the form of limited office space for their expanding staff. Developers, often prioritizing the optimization of factory and warehouse areas, inadvertently create a scarcity of suitable office environments. In response to this common dilemma, Heighton offers a innovative solution by identifying opportunities to extend first-floor offices seamlessly over existing warehouse operations.
Our unique approach involves strategic extensions over packing benches, dispatch areas, and assembly lines, effectively maximizing available space. Critical to this process is the consideration of sound suppression to maintain a conducive work environment within the expanded offices. With the seasoned expertise of the Heighton team, we possess the knowledge and experience to successfully execute such extensions, ensuring that companies can grow their office workforce within the same building, fostering team cohesion and operational efficiency.
Heighton operates on a Design and Partner methodology, taking standard Design and Construct projects and turning these into a partnership approach for the most successful completion of projects. Integrating design, construction, and manufacturing allows for a more seamless workflow throughout the entire project lifecycle.
Partnership & Innovation
With all projects being carried out in an operating facility, it requires a partnership and innovative solutions to ensure disruption is minimised. The Heighton methodology adopts a ‘one team’ approach to ensure all teams are well briefed and understand each project milestone. A detailed construction plan including busy operating days for the operation is put together and followed closely to ensure the successful completion of the works. In some cases, weekend works, and night is required to meet the outcome. Heighton has a saying we use regularly – “do what it takes”.
As the principal entity responsible for designing, manufacturing, and constructing the majority of projects it undertakes, Heighton possesses an exceptional capacity for swift modifications. While many builders adhere rigidly to initial plans, Heighton not only embraces flexibility but thrives on the agility to promptly adapt to evolving project needs. This adaptability proves indispensable when executing projects within existing facilities, where the ability to accommodate changes is deemed essential.
Executing construction projects within an already operational facility introduces considerable project risk. Heighton systematically devises comprehensive risk mitigation processes for each project, prioritising the safety of both the facility's staff and the Heighton team. The risk mitigation plan is communicated to and understood by both teams, with Heighton's Project Manager assuming full accountability for its successful implementation.
