We commenced the demolition and reconstruction of the existing top two floors which then offered three new inviting duplex apartments over floors three to six. In addition, a full refurbishment to the residential reception, the lifts and the basement plant room took place within the live, working building.
Works comprised of essential storage upgrade, modern WCs and showers, a welcome reception area, friendly communal areas, kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms, and terraces. Works to roof to accommodate essential additional plant, acoustic treatment, a new roof structure and roof coverings.
With the building being live in a commercial capacity, scheduling the noisy, usually disruptive works was a key challenge.
Business As Usual
Out of hours working was safely managed to ensure business as usual continued throughout the commercial office space.
Extensive External Works
In terms of the vacated residential areas, the scaffolding required to support the fifth and sixth floor demolition works would incorporate monoflex coverings to confine dust and waste to the site boundaries.
The communal areas had notices displayed throughout with our contact details on to advise building occupants on how the works were proceeding. Regular meetings took place with all stakeholders to manage expectations.
8build were very pro-active in helping achieve this challenging design whilst keeping the quality at a high level at all times.
