Roman are the highly successful international company based in Newton Aycliffe, which produces bathroom furniture and accessories for the domestic and commercial market. With their current premises reaching maximum capacity, Niven were commissioned to carry out a feasibility study for all possible options for expansion including additional premises.
The architectural solutions were all based around an understanding of the various manufacturing processes and output requirements, and follow the dictum that ‘form follows function’. Although primarily an industrial building, any extension would incorporate an element of showroom and this would be an opportunity to possibly showcase the precision and distinction of the Roman products in elements of the front elevation, and bring some architectural quality to an otherwise drab industrial setting. The project is currently on hold awaiting client instruction.
