Scope and Scale 

Building solution for fast growing bus manufacturing company DesignLine The factory floor (fibre reinforced floor slabs with armoured edged floor joints) is a massive 8,000m2 and is supported by a 600m2 two-storey office building. The layout of the factory allows for a “process line” methodology from fitting out of bus bodies with import motors and chassis to buses entering one of the two 600m2 twin paint booths 


The construction of this new premises proves that an open partnership with all parties, from developer , client, to end user guarantees a successful project. HRS was involved in the project from the outset providing input and build ability review, cost engineering, and programme advice as part of the design process. 

HRS entered into a negotiated construction contract with an open book policy. HRS managed and worked very collaboratively with significant suppliers and subcontractors for excavation, structural steel, precast panel (cast on site) wall and roof cladding and landscaping gaining complete ‘buy in’ to budget and programme objectives.
