Architect Answers: Project Sangam

We have recently interviewed one of our fletching architects at GOSS Outdoor, Ms RA, who have started working with us in our headquarters middle of 2019. She was asked to spend 10 minutes with our blogging and media team to talk about their most memorable projects so far working in our team. "I want to talk about the Sangam project, which is based in the Manchester City Centre." She goes on to explain to us that the reason she has chosen this particular one was that it was her first big project, which has arrived at her doorstep with a lot of new and challenging experiences she currently has added to her professional working career.

"This project was super nerve-wracking for me right off the bat, when I started working at GOSS Outdoor. The project was heavily based around 'planning application' which I had never done before. I was really anxious and wanted to do a great job, as I also wished to impress my peers!" Ms RA states in her interview. "I chose to talk about this project because straight from the get-go, it has left a big impression on me and gave me a taste of what I have decided to take on. This project helped me to learn a lot and grow rapidly."

The Sangam project is still ongoing, as the architects and managers are at the stage of still fighting towards getting this collaboration completed. The current stage is in the waiting phase - where our architect Ms RA is waiting for positive news from the council regarding the planning application. "We have pitched our idea and cause of this project with the Manchester City Council, who will either give us the yes or no to continue along with this installation, which involves the shisha lounge Sangam to get a 'smoking regulation' approved for their commercial establishment, to allow them to have shisha facilities available for their customers. If this project is approved, this will mark the Sangam Project as the first establishment in the Manchester city to have a legally licensed shisha lounge." Ms RA goes on to explain that it is extremely difficult for businesses to get smoking permission on their commercial properties, and there are a lot of factors to be considered and pass through the checklist of health hazard requirements. She feels positive that this project will come to a fruitful conclusion, and hoping to be finished in 2020.

Architects Answers: The project of Restaurant Lugana, London [Subulate Minima]

This week, we have interviewed one of our main architects and technicians Miss Selma A, in relation to one of the latest projects we have completed at GOSS Outdoor. This project, in particular, involved a Subulate Quercus Minima to be installed at the front outdoor space of the Restaurant Lugana establishment, based in Beckenham, London.

Miss Selma has explained that the reason of her choosing to talk about this project, in particular, was due to the many complications of the naturally affected area which she has had to work with to accomplish this project: "This project was my personal biggest challenge so far, whilst working at GOSS Outdoor. The reason I have seen it suitable to talk about this installation was because of the many factors which affected the area we had to work with and come up with solutions to see the project through. The area we were working with was uneven on the right and left sides, there was not enough back wall height, the floor which the pergola was to be placed onto was uneven, and quite a few limitations involving the natural state of the site. In addition to those, we had the task of having to make sure the pergola seamlessly fitted under the Restaurant Lugana signage and looked as natural and perfect as possible."

Miss Selma continues on to explain how she has overcome these challenges during the project: "To be able to successfully complete this project, there was a lot of need for clear instructions and communications exchanged, and many drawing works was created to plan out the installation and of the product. The project required revising constantly during the development and I had to be able to be attentive to details, determined to succeed and gain extra support from our engineer consultants in regards to technical assistance."

We asked our architect how she felt upon the completion of the project: "To be able to see the drawing you create come to life and work incredibly flawlessly with such a simple operational system was mind-blowing and very rewarding at the end. It made me feel that all my efforts were worth it. The outdoor space looks very modern and comfortable, to help the customers of Lugana Restaurants enjoy a lovely meal outdoors."

We thank you for your hard work and look forward to hearing from you again about your future endeavours!

This week, we have interviewed one of our main architects and technicians Miss Busra B, about one of the latest projects which the GOSS Outdoor team has recently completed. The project subjected the installation of two Subulate Quercus Minima, and our customer was based in London.

Busra went onto tell the story of this project from start to finish: "NH, our customer based in London, has contacted the office directly and she knew exactly what she wanted which made the quotation and preparing the project stages very straight forward. She had requested two Subulate Quercus Minima for her back garden."

Miss Busra continues on to explain some of the struggles she faced during the project: "We were very time-limited for this project and it was a really fast-paced task which had a lot of us working extra hours, however, we have successfully completed the project within the deadline given to us by Ms NH."

We asked our architect what her thoughts were on the completed project: "When this project had been completed, I felt very fulfilled to see that our dear customer was very satisfied with the outcome of the project and her pergola completed the unique and luxurious outdoor space she had always dreamt of."
