Four Things to Consider When Choosing Industrial Architecture

Whether you are exploring industrial architecture for your corporate building, your US headquarters, or for any other major building, there are some things that you need to consider. It’s important to choose an architect that can provide you with the designs you want at the price that you can afford. Additionally, you want to make sure that it makes the necessary impact within the area.

The first thing that you need to look at is what an architect has done in the past. You may already have some basic designs that you want to incorporate within the industrial architecture that you have designed. If an architect has not created anything even remotely close to what you are looking for, it is unlikely that they will be able to impress. Instead, you want to choose an architect that has designed similar to what you are looking for.

The second thing that you need to look at is whether eco-friendly materials can be used within the design. More companies than ever before are using sustainable and biodegradable materials. These can help you to market as an environmentally friendly business and do your part to protect the planet. An architect should be able to use green architecture in order to make plans for your structure.

The third thing that you need to look at is the use of interior space. One of the hottest trends in industrial architecture right now is flexible space. This means that you need to figure out whether the space can be converted into various other things based upon your needs. If you choose a design that will grow with you, you can avoid having to sell your building and obtain or construct a new one each time you expand.

Finally, you want to explore what the costs are going to be to design the industrial architecture. Every architect has their own price structure and you will want to be sure that it meets your needs. If you are unable to get what you want at the price that you can afford, you need to know this in advance and move on to another architectural firm. Every architect should be comfortable with providing you with a price – or at least a ballpark figure prior to moving forward with designs.

There is never a reason for you to settle with the design. It may take working with more than one architect to ensure that your designs are encompassed inside and out. If a company is unable to provide you with the unique design for your building, you need to ask for another architect to sit down with you or move on to a different firm.

You are in control of who you hire for your industrial architecture project. Explore what is available on the market and be sure you are comfortable with who you choose based upon their designs, their flexibility, and their costs. A great architect can create amazing designs for your company.

Started Looking for a Place in Holland

When I say that I started looking for a place in Holland, I am not talking about the Netherlands. Instead I am still in Michigan and still freezing my buns off just like the people back in Grand Rapids. I do need to find the best holland apartments for my new job and hope that I can make the payments on all of the stuff I have going on until I get myself back on solid financial ground. Of course I went close to three months with no job and I had just barely enough money to keep myself afloat for that long. It is hard to know how much money you should save, but I always tried to go by the three month rule. Continue reading “Started Looking for a Place in Holland”

Improving Safety in the Construction Industry

Not only does the construction industry add jobs to the economy, it is one of the most dangerous professions when rating accidents per worker in the United Sates. As such, through the years, there have been many regulations created to prevent accidents, both on and around active construction sites. According to several independent studies taken during the last decade, many construction site accidents or fatalities are completely preventable.

Worksite safety should be a part of any construction company’s culture. This is the case for many companies. With the current climate in the job market though, some workers may feel pressured to work with companies whose safety track record or company culture is not what it should be in order to put food on the table. Being willing to take a dangerous job during difficult times and to make ends meet is not a new phenomenon, but in today’s day and age, one should not need to put their life in jeopardy in order to make a living wage.

Unfortunately, many of these situations involve workers who do not speak English as a first language. After some investigation, sources have found that day laborers (often from other countries) are far more likely to be injured or killed in construction site accidents than those who are citizens of the United States. Many of these accidents go unreported due to fears about deportation.

When evaluating your company’s culture, take a look at the following list to see how many of the statements below are true for your company to see how safety minded your company actually is.

Safety-minded companies don’t believe in cutting corners.

This is not a case of workers leaving out rivets in the Titanic type of accident. Companies who are safety minded make sure that the job is done, done right, and done completely. While coming in under budget is an incentive, the time and man hours lost in an accident far outweigh the time or money saved in a shortcut.

Safety minded companies maintain their equipment.

Since accidents around heavy equipment are one of the major causes of construction site safety failures, companies with regularly maintained equipment are more likely to have accidents than others.

Safety minded companies train, train, and train again.

One of the other leading causes of construction site accidents is human error. Sometimes, this happens because a worker is tired, untrained for the particular task which they have been assigned or just because workers are human and make mistakes. Looking out for employees by training often and completely can help prevent accidents.

Why Is Restoration Architecture Important?

Whether you move into an older home or your home has experienced some kind of catastrophe, restoration architecture has the ability to enhance the designs that once were – and even bring back some of the historic charm that was associated with the house.

Restoration architecture is an art and a science. There are a lot of architects that can create a design from scratch, but not everyone is able to take pre-existing designs and improve upon them and stay true to the shapes and lines that made that the building so stunning in the first place.

Especially if your home is very old, you want to bring back the Victorian or Colonial look so that it has the charm of yesteryear. There are a lot of ways to do this, though you need a talented architect to help you. Similar materials and colors can be used to recreate the home. By recreating, you may even catch the eye of the historic committee in your town for them to give you kudos for what you are doing.

If your home went through a fire or some other issue, you may be living in a shell of a home. The features that you loved in the home are gone and it’s not quite the same anymore. You don’t have to sell the home and buy a new one. This is what restoration architecture is for. You can provide photos or blueprints for the architect to work from – or even describe some of the features that once existed.

Before you hire an architect to help with your restoration project, you want to see what they have been able to do in the past. With other architectural projects, completed photos will work. However, when you have a home that is being restored, you want to see before and after photos. This will ensure that you are able to see what they did with the home and to what extent they were able to make a difference.

You need to be able to capture the beauty of the home once again. Age, fire, or other issues may have affected the interior and the exterior. There may be drooping timbers, a dilapidated spiral staircase, and a front porch that no longer wraps around. Whatever the issues may be, you want to find an architect that can restore the home to its original beauty.

It’s possible to sit down with an architect that specializes in restoration architecture to have a conversation about your project. Find out what their thoughts are, what they think they can do, and what it is going to cost you. It’s a good idea to do this with a few different architectural firms so you can be confident you are choosing the best in the area.

Only after talking to multiple architects should you make a decision as to who will help you restore your home. It can be phenomenal, but only if you choose a talented architect that has worked heavily with restoration.
