A recent commercial project was a new building at Dale Road, Buxton for Lomas Foods, and now occupied by Steve's Tyre & Exhaust. The portal framed building was designed to fit into an irregular site in order to make the best use of the available space, and to allow vehicle turning space for the adjacent warehouse. It fully complies with modern access standards, with a disabled toilet, ramps and a platform lift giving first floor access. A second building on the same site is Lomas Food's warehouse, where a mezzanine floor was installed to increase storage area. A similar mezzanine floor has recently been designed for DRC in Bristol to form offices.
Other similar projects include a new factory for the Dutch Maid Company in Buxton, where the building was designed and built by Derbyshire County Council to a plan determined by Trevor Gilman in conjunction with the owners. He was also responsible for internal works and the production machinery as well as acting as project manager. Trevor Gilman has been involved in the design of portal framed buildings in many locations and for a variety of purposes.
Other work has been carried out on shops offices and farms. The work has included new shop fronts, frequently in conservation areas; conversions, extensions and alterations in general. Equal access toilet accommodation is now necessary in many buildings. High Peak Radio's premises represent just one example. Residential care homes have to meet standards of safety. Trevor Gilman has worked on the conversion or improvement of several care homes.
