Office Fitout Phases 1 & 2. This project consisted of fitting out six office plates in an existing live building throughout the course of six different phases. Each phase took approximately 8 weeks to hand back a completed floor plate to the Client.

Project Details

Each of the floors was serviced using an external loading bay gantry. A window was removed from the floor we were working on and this was used for material and personnel access. This eliminated the risk interface between the building users and the Construction personnel.

Each floor consisted of a complete strip out of the existing finishes and services. 95% of the existing mate- rials were either reused or recycled. Once the strip out was completed the 1st fix services got underway.

In some instances issues became apparent with the existing services installed or fire proofing. These issues were brought to the Design Teams attention and a remedial plan would be valued and agreed. Whilst the services were ongoing the 1st fix partitions would also get underway.

Sound proofing was a major concern for the Design Team and Client on the project. All partitions were brought from slab to slab to ensure sound quality. All service penetrations were planed and built around in a managed fashion.

Once all of the trades were completed in the ceiling the flooring commenced and then the furniture was moved in and wired for data and power. Our team assisted the Client with all of their move in phases over agreed weekends to avoid any disruption.

This project was delivered on schedule every time, without incident and with Zero Defects. It is a testament to our ability to work in a live environment and achieve so many different programme milestone dates safely.
