Richard Herrmann Associates Ltd. have gained extensive experience within the hospital and healthcare industry, designing the structure for new operating theatres, wards, plant rooms, meeting rooms, etc. Dedicated design has been carried out for structure associated with the support of hospital equipment such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners, CT scanners (both floor and ceiling mounted), surgeons display panels, theatre laminar flow canopies, etc
Swimming pools, squash courts, gymnasiums, meeting halls, changing facilities all feature on our extensive list of previous leisure sector projects. Each type of building is designed to meet the high-standards required of both the Client, and the end-user, ensuring that the building is suitable for its' intended use for the duration of its' life. Particular consideration is provided to unusual design issues, such as the high temperature changes/humidity levels associated with swimming pools, impact of sports equipment in gymnasiums etc.
Industrial projects often require unique design criteria, placing unusual restrictions on the structural options. The support of mechanical equipment often imparts large loads to the structure, along with requiring limitations on vibration characteristics. Richard Herrmann Associates Ltd. has designed structure associated with grain silos, smolting processes, car manufacture plants.
The design of frames and gantries to support bespoke and specialist equipment is carried out to the Client's strict requirements, often involving particular consideration of vibration and deflection limitations of the supporting structure.
We often work closely with manufacturing engineers to provide justification of framework already detailed, or provide original design advice and guidance should it be required.
Fabrication drawings and assembly parts lists can also be produced for steelwork manufacture.
