Amoya Construction Also Specialises In Office Renovations

Time to start 2020 with an amazing newly renovated office.

It is time to visually express your office. An office says a lot about the company and what you are willing to put back into your business. Along with the people you employ, this is the face of your business to all your clients and potential clients who enter your office or building. What do people see when they enter your office?

People are used to walking into the same office building, with the same furniture and the same employees you greet every day. We all have our daily routines. But have you thought about changing the “look and feel” of your company for the new year that is peaking?

It might be time to pay attention to the smaller things that need renovation. Flooring adds a touch of class and professionalism to the office, while lighting plays a big role in warmth and feel of the office and the colour on the walls have an impact on the productivity of your employees.

It might be time you look at your office through the eyes of a new client. Making a few small changes to the face of your business, will not only make the office an exciting place to work, but also something you can be proud of when it’s done.

How to incorporate office renovations on a small budget?

As the new year is slowly approaching, you might have noticed your business expanding and the workload increases. You have even considered employing more people, but the office space seems too small. There might be no need to move to new premises. Amoya Construction has another solution. Office Renovations.

There are plenty of options available for office renovations that could be the solution to starting the new year with new confidence, new employees and a professional looking, yet effective working space.

Remove the partitions and / or cubicles.

Out with the old and in with the new. This is the time to get rid of those outdated partitions or cubicles. Having them removed, results in a bigger office with more collaboration from co-workers enhancing their abilities to work together. Instead of cubicles or partitioning between employees with large desks, freeing up office space by installing wall mounted desks will increase office space. These wall mounted desks can be custom and installed to your specification. There are even wall mounted shelves you can install which make storage a problem of the past.

Add new flooring.

Want a bigger looking office that looks and feels more spacious and professional? Removing your carpets and replacing them with laminated flooring or vinyl, could do just that. At Amoya Construction, our experience in office renovations goes beyond expectations.

Add new lights to your office.

Light has a significant effect on any office space. Just by making a few adjustments, installing a new light fixture or replacing the existing lights with modern lights, can make your office waiting area feel like new.

Different types of lights are used in different spaces.

Track lighting – Used to highlight certain areas in a room such as artwork or architectural elements.

Wall lights – These lights are used to create a local focus point and used in areas that are in minimal use.

Recessed lights – Are used in combination with other lamps around a focal point to create a well-lit room without the glare.

Hidden lights – These modern lights are often covered by an aluminium cover which looks professional in any office. Hidden lights are used to light up an office space without the effects of harsh lights on the eyes.

Creative lighting – What an amazing way to light up windowless workspaces. Creative lighting adds a touch of elegance while lighting up the office, ensuring your office has a cool feel to it.

Painting the walls.

Adding a new colour to the office walls have got an impact on your employees as well as on your clients and even on yourself. Have you thought about changing your reception area? Adding a colour to the walls that is welcoming to your clients are what you need in 2020. And most definitely adding new light fixtures to the newly painted wall will add a touch of warmth and welcome. Changing the colour of the walls in an office can have a major impact on the employees and potential clients.

Change the exterior appearance of your building.

As times are changing, you might need to pay attention to the aesthetic appearance of the building. There are beautiful designs for making small changes to the exterior appearance of the building. Surfaces define the appearance of a building. By adding an arch at the entrance or maybe creating a beautiful exterior of stone or adding a few glass windows at the entrance will change the way you look at your office.

Repair the cracks on the exterior walls.

Nothing looks more unappealing than a building with peeling paint and exterior cracks. Understanding the reason for the cracks might call for a professional to examine the reason for the cracking wall. Cracks can occur due to various reasons chemical reactions in construction materials, foundation movements and settling of buildings, changes in temperature and climate, environmental stresses such as trucks, vehicles, explosions under the ground by mining activity or trains passing by. But fixing the cracks is indefinite. It must be done.

Peeling paint.

Water is the primary cause of peeling paint. A leak might be the main cause for the peeling paint. Ask an expert to check the roof for leaks as well as the gutters. Water vapour that accumulates beneath paint or primer separates these coatings from the surface. Pay attention to these areas as it might cause bigger problems if left untreated.

Amoya Construction has the expertise to advise on the cause and repair the cracks on the exterior walls of the building. We have the knowledge to transform your office, the will power to transform your office and a large team we are proud of.

Amoya Construction, your partner in the construction industry. Big or small, we can do it all.

There are several office renovations you can do yourself. But when it comes to adding new lighting fixtures or drywalling, new ceilings or new flooring, it’s time to call in the experts, Amoya Construction.

Office renovations are often mistaken for heavy construction in the office. Sometimes, an office renovation can be as simple as adding a new colour to your walls. Colour have a major impact on the human mind. Depending on the colour you choose, this can certainly have an impact on your clients and employees.

Experts When It Comes To Your Development Concept

The development concept of a new building or a new house can be a very exciting time in construction. This is where it all starts. Your dreams and visions becoming a reality. Construction mainly consists of 5 phases. The five phases of project management include conception and initiation, planning, execution, performance/monitoring, and project close. Every project begins with an idea. During the early stages of this development concept, you might notice the initial concept might lack a definite shape or form.

This is where we come in. Amoya Construction can help you shape and form your development concept into a working reality. This is the time<>A concept typically highlights the best features of the development concept in terms of appearance, convenience, usability, quality, functionality, price and ensuring the vision for the building is the same as what our client have in mind.

Amoya Construction – Your Construction Company in Johannesburg

Did you know that cement has been around since 1824?  This amazing product, used by construction companies all over the world, was invented by Joseph Aspdin.  This invention in the construction industry was discovered when Jospeh Aspdin burned finely ground chalk and clay in a kiln until the carbon dioxide was removed. The name “Portland” was assigned to this product due to the resemblance to the high-quality building stone found in Portland, England.

Construction companies worldwide would not have been able to build amazing structures and beautiful homes, bridges and towers if it was not for the people before us who made it their life’s work to invent and discover a simple yet amazing product like cement. Cement is mainly used as a binder in concrete, which is a basic material for all types of construction, including housing, roads, schools, hospitals, dams and ports, as well as for decorative applications such as patios, floors, staircases, driveways, pool decks and items like tables, sculptures or bookcases.

Thanks to these amazing inventions, Amoya Construction – a construction company in Johannesburg, we can build your dream house or the business centre or office park you have been waiting for. Amoya Construction are leaders in the construction industry with a reputation that speaks for itself.

Which building materials are necessary for construction?

A typical construction site can look a bit intimidating at first glance. Tools and building materials as far as the eye can see. But these tools are specifically designed to make the job at hand faster, less time consuming and efficient. There are over 45 hand tools alone needed for the construction of a building.

When it comes to building materials, the list is just as long. The basic construction materials list includes cement, steel, sand, concrete mixer, binding wires, coarse aggregates, fine aggregates, bricks, blocks etc.

More importantly, there are 2 main categories for classifying building materials, such as natural and synthetic. Natural building materials are things like lumber and glass. Synthetic materials are made in industrial settings after much human manipulations, such as plastics and petroleum-based paints. Both these building materials are used daily by construction companies.

The construction industry has undergone so many changes over the last decade alone.While some materials have simply evolved over time (like concrete and marble), there are newer cutting-edge materials being developed on the horizon.

Did you ever think you would hear the words “air cleaning bricks”? Yes, in fact, they are being developed.  Bricks that can filter incoming air to remove pollutants. These bricks will be placed on the outside of buildings to filter the air before entering the building.

Then there is another product on the horizon, illuminating cement. This newly developed cement will revolutionise road construction. Illuminating cement catches rays from the sun during daytime and reflect on the roads during the nights. This new product can also be used to light up driveways as well as light up a swimming pool during the night.

Or did you think you would love to hear about “Self-Healing Concrete”?  Concrete has been known over the decades to crack and has been a long-standing problem in all industries using cement. With this innovative product called “Self-Healing Concrete,” this challenge can be solved. Self-Healing Concrete is a product that consists of living spores and water capsules within the mixed concrete. When damage occurs, the capsules crack open and mix with water. This mixture produces calcite, a material that fills the damaged area and later solidifies in place.  By using self-healing concrete, structures such as tunnels, buildings and bridges will cost less to build and maintain. 

Then there is yet another exciting product on the market. Programmable cement. Programmable cement is essentially a form of cement that can be designed to achieve less porous and more chemically resistant shapes. These innovative shapes limit damage to concrete and increase the durability of structures. To make concrete structures more durable, programmable cement can be used to achieve water and chemical resistance. 

These new building materials to the construction industry are to name just a few. There are certainly many more exciting and innovative products to come.

Do I Need An Architect For My Construction Project?

Architects play a crucial part in the designing, planning and development on the construction of the desired property. Architects now make use of the latest technology when it comes to the planning of the design for your perfect property or new business. With the latest technology available, Architects are using 3D Modelling to show the clients a virtual image of the project at hand.

What is 3D Modelling and how is it used?

3D modelling is a technique in computer graphics for producing a 3D digital representation of any object or surface. An artist uses special software to manipulate points in virtual space (called vertices) to form a collection of vertices that form an object. When 3D printing architectural models, you combine the precision of virtual 3D modelling with the tangibility of a physical object. Architects used to create scale models mostly out of wood or foam, but more and more of them are embracing the benefits of 3D printing their newest designs

Why hire a Civil and Structural Engineer?

Civil and Structural Engineering goes back to ancient times when people started constructing shelters for themselves. The history of civil and structural engineering dates back to 2700 BC when the step pyramid for Pharaoh Djoser was built by Imhotep, the first engineer in history known by name.

But what is the difference between Civil and Structural Engineering?

Civil engineering focuses more attention in design elements, Civil engineering informatics is on fundamental methods, models and processes of civil engineering, as well as information technology. This provides the basis for the systematic mapping of problems to the computer in such a way that the potential of information technology can be fully exploited. Structural engineering is more concerned on inspecting materials to be used for the construction. Structural design is conducted by a structural engineer whose role is to ensure the safety, stability and performance of the structure. Structural engineering also involves the analysis, design, construction and maintenance of structures that reinforce or counteracts loads such as skyscrapers, dams and bridges.

Do I Need A Mechanical Engineer and What do mechanical and electrical engineers do?

Mechanical engineers design power-producing machines, such as electric generators, internal combustion engines, and steam and gas turbines, as well as power-using machines, such as refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. Mechanical engineers design other machines inside buildings, such as elevators and escalators

Why are mechanical engineers important?

Mechanical engineers are involved with the design, analysis, testing, manufacturing, control, operation, and maintenance of mechanical systems. Mechanical Engineering is important. It deals with all aspects of the conversion of thermal energy into useful work and the machines that make this possible.

What is special about mechanical engineering?

Mechanical engineering is the discipline that applies engineering, physics, engineering mathematics, and materials science principles to design, analyse, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the design, production, and operation of machinery.

What is Electrical Engineering?

Electrical engineering is one of the newer branches of engineering and dates back to the late 19th century. It is the branch of engineering that deals with the technology of electricity. Electrical engineers work on a wide range of components, devices and systems, from tiny microchips to huge power station generators. Generally, the task of an electrical engineer is to design high voltage equipment such as wiring systems, lighting systems, and generators.

An electrical engineer is someone who designs and develops new electrical systems, solves problems and tests equipment. They study and apply the physics and mathematics of electricity, electromagnetism and electronics to both large- and small-scale systems to process information and transmit energy.

What is a Fire Consultant and what do they do?

Fire Engineer/consultant is a specialist whose knowledge covers a wide range of scientific, technological, sociological, management and legal topics related to fire and its prevention and extinction. Fire safety is the set of practices intended to reduce the destruction caused by fire. Fire safety measures include those that are intended to prevent ignition of an uncontrolled fire and those that are used to limit the development and effects of a fire after it starts.

Fire Engineering is the application of scientific and engineering principles, rules and expert judgment, based on an understanding of the phenomena and effects of fire and of the reaction and behaviour of people to fire, to protect people, property and the environment from the destructive effects of fire.
