The ODAPS creative office design team produces both functional and innovate workplace solutions
By combining creative flair with a sound understanding of building construction, our office designers can produce solutions for all situations. From the functional to the innovative, whether you simply need to fit more people into your office, or wish to add a ‘wow factor’ to improve your profile, ODAPS Ltd can help.
From concept design to full working drawings to implementation, ODAPS designers work in partnership with our clients to develop the brief and to identify the right solution. Every project is unique and we apply our expertise and knowledge to provide a tailor made solution to suit your business activities.
We can undertake a building Appraisal of existing or new office space to assess how your space can be used more efficiently, or how much space you will require in a new office. We also ask the relevant questions to stimulate consideration for how the office can be established to cope with changing business requirements. This allows us to produce a workplace strategy to ensure that the design is ‘future proofed’ and the budget is allocated in the right areas to help the strategic growth of your business.
You can also be assured that we consistently deliver value for money. With knowledge of products, office furniture and materials and how to apply them our designers can maximise the potential of your budget.
Building Regulations and other Statutory Legislation
Every office we plan and design complies with current Building Regulations
Ensuring compliance with current legislation relative to buildings and their uses is a core activity for our design team. There are many regulations relevant to building design and their subsequent use. Perhaps the most significant is the Building Regulations. these comprise a series of Approved Documents which stipulate minimum standards to be complied with in regards of disabled access, fire safety, thermal insulation, structural stability and so forth. As such they have a significant impact on the safety and welfare of building users, as well as promoting energy efficiency.
When undertaking alterations to a building or implementing an office design, it is a legal requirement to demonstrate the design and works comply with the Building Regulations. In most cases an application to the Local Council or an Approved Inspector is required. Our designers are qualified professionals and consequently all our designs are carried out in accordance with these regulations. As these regulations are reviewed and updated on a regular basis we commit to refresher training for all our team to maintain competence.
We keep upto date with all our training to ensure we incorporate other legislation that has an impact on a project such as the Display Screen Equipment Regulations, Equality Act, Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order, to name but a few. Consequently all our clients can be satisfied that their completed office refurbishment or fit out complies with the relevant legislation.
So whether you require an additional office of a full office refurbishment, from the simple to the creative, you can be sure that ODAPS will deliver the right solution with the assurance it will be functional and fully comply with current legislation.
