The scope of works included the complete refurbishment of the ground floor and basement office areas, refurbishment of common areas including the reception and entrance, installation of a new staircase linking basement and reception, installation of new lift facilities, upgrade of all staircases, major structural opening up and temporary works within the basement and reception, provision for natural lighting to the basement, waterproofing of basement.
The mechanical and electrical upgrade included installation of new boilers and revamp of the entire
heating system, air conditioning and security installation. The existing building was a six storey converted warehouse located within 5 minutes f London Bridge. Aside from the normal constraints of
working within a city location our client wanted to maintain a fully operational office building during the works.
The upper floors remained in occupation along with 50% of the ground floor and careful programming and liaison was necessary to maintain access and sufficient means of escape to building users at all times. The control of noise was also high priority for our client, and again this was managed successfully with the combination of phasing, planning, liaison and out of hours working. The project was specified to a high standard particularly common areas and reception lobby.
