Building a new office block

We have a big site at work but after the company expanded we were running very short on office space. Most of our accounts team was in a demountable office and they were really hot in summer and cold in winter. It was so much better for the whole team once we got the new office block built on site. This blog talks about the process of building a new office block, including the design and construction of a block for your team. I hope it will be useful for anyone looking to build a new office block on their site.

House Plans: What to Think About When Choosing the Right One

Troy Medina

Everyone dreams of owning a home and getting to the day you won't be hearing from a landlord ever again. Rent is undoubtedly a big expenditure that can keep you on the back foot for many years. By building your home, you can channel that money into something else. This significant investment requires you to choose a good plan for your house otherwise you will pump money into a building that will disappoint you. It is imperative to choose a good plan for your house to avoid any disappointment. Here are the things you should think about:

Think About Your Lifestyle

What makes you tick? What activities define you when you decide to spend time at home?  The secret to choosing a good plan for your house is to think about your lifestyle. Every living space should be configured to suit whatever you like doing when you spend time at home. For instance, the house's plan should allow you to enjoy your entertainment activities by including your preferred facilities such as swimming pools, grilling area and many others. To add on that, the plan should be permissive of various elements and accessories that you would like to use to furnish the house.

Think about Your Energy Sources

Energy sources are one of the key considerations when choosing a plan for your house. Particularly, you need to ask yourself if you are planning to build an ordinary house or a green home that will focus on making big energy savings. Green homes are ideal if you are looking to make big savings, long-term savings on your power bills. This is an important consideration because it is best to include all the features of a green home in the initial plan for your house. As the builder works on the plumbing, electricity connections and other features, it is advisable to incorporate the green features right from the onset. Adding them later after setting up the house will only make you pay more for during construction.


Note that the development of properties is subject to zoning ordinances and building permit provisions. Homeowners' associations also have a say in the way you build your house in particular neighbourhoods. It is important to conform to all sets of laws to avoid hefty penalties. These provisions dictate the type and nature of construction materials you can use, the size of space you can leave on the sides and fronts of the size of sewage systems and many others. All these things affect your home's plan in a certain way.
