The works consisted of consolidating several spread out areas of administration areas into a more condensed area within an existing live premises. As all areas were occupied by staff, the project had to be carried out on a phased basis by completing new areas first and relocating staff, furniture and equipment into these areas before refurbishing the existing areas.

The project consisted of a fully fitted out project, including reusing existing furniture and supplying new furniture where necessary. All areas were intensely serviced with new mechanical, electrical, sprinkler and ICT services.

In addition to the services installation, the works also included:

  • Structural studwork partition
  • Ceiling finishes
  • Floor finishes
  • Roof repairs
  • Demolition
  • Strip out existing areas
  • Blockwork
  • Plastering
  • Painting and decorating.

The project consisted of seven phases carried out over six months.
Security was of the utmost importance. Each construction employee had to have a security clearance pass. This involved photo identification, which had to be displayed at all times during construction.
