Car Showrooms

BDS can design visible structures for car showrooms to reflect their business. BDS can design showrooms to deal with modern needs of car sales with ever changing car types and models. The design can reflect changing customer buying habits such as internet buying and purchase of electric cars.

To meet current building standards for car showroom, BDS design to the current eurocodes and National Annexes. BDS consider all structural aspects which are required for any car dealership and take into account all the architectural requirements of this.

Shopping Malls

Shopping centres and mall buildings are ever changing assets. Shopping centre developers need to keep up to date with modern retail use and the building structure needs to reflect that.

BDS provide structures which are designed for the future use of tenants and shoppers. On this basis our design allows for: higher crowd loadings, changing shopping environments, more security, more safety and climate change.

BDS provide sustainable structural schemes for twenty first century shopping malls using the latest design codes and design technology. We can provide a wide range of design for steel and reinforced concrete frame shopping mall buildings. These are designed to the current relevant eurocodes and National Annexes which would be a building insurance requirement and possibly a condition of sale for a new owner.

High Street Retail Buildings - Otley Market Place

We have designed structural alterations for high street retail premises. An excellent example was a retail conversion from a motor trade shop to a space currently used for standard retail. This project received Listed Building Consent and Full Building Regulations from Leeds City Council and was converted to a safe condition.

This project was sustainable because it still reflects the buildings historical character but maintains its sustainability for modern and future retail needs.

BDS used state of the art software to design an engineered timber floor for the conversion, whilst still keeping the original features for historical interest. Thereby taking historical structure into the future whilst still maintaining its character.
