Overview

Following our move to The City in London we were privileged to be appointed as main contractor to undertake the CAT A fit-out works to Levels 27 and 32 of this iconic building in the heart of our capital.

This project offered new challenges for our experienced team, working in an unusual property with a circular floor plan. Installations of new metal pan ceilings and raised flooring posed various setting out challenges and the works were dominated with the installation of new mechanical and electrical services all linking to the incumbent property BMS control system.

General fit out included decoration, joinery and stone flooring works as well as the previously mentioned ceiling and floor systems leaving each floor a clean open plan office facility.

All works were undertaken under the restrictions and control systems imposed when working with the building management team in this high security property and through good channels of communication this process worked well and led to a successful project.
