Expertise saves customer money

A client and their architect for a private new build have been left “delighted” after a team at AJE completed the steelwork on their new home and in turn saved them money.

Led by project manager, James Attridge, AJE was asked to supply 14 tonnes of steel for the property at Westerwoods Farm near Nigg in Easter Ross.

AJE’s role in the project is now complete and James explained, they have been left with a happy customer.

He said: “The steel installation is now complete, and the client and architect are
delighted at the finished product. We worked very closely with the customer. Originally,
we were to provide galvanised steel. That is what had been specified by the engineer.
However, as some of the external steel was going to be visible, we suggested to the
customer that they could choose a painted solution for the steel which, particularly on
the areas which would be seen, would be more aesthetically pleasing.
“So, the internal steel which won’t be exposed to the elements was coated to a modest C1 corrosion standard whilst the external steel was paint coated to a C5 standard which for an outdoor coastal environment, will stand up to the rigours of the coast in that neck of the woods. Galvanising would have been sufficient for that, but it would have looked quite industrial and more convoluted as it would have to have been painted after it was installed. An industrial finish wasn’t really the look the customer wanted, so we were able to give them an alternative suggestion which ticked all the boxes.”
