We were instructed to procure the refurbishment of three Industrial units. The previous tenant had manufactured products using fibreglass, and the remnants from the process were scattered around the buildings.
We produced a detailed schedule of works, invited contractors to tender for the project and then managed a contract to procure the works over a 15-week period. Building work included elements of reinstatement to separate the units for new tenancies.
We advised on the appointment of a Structural Engineer and subsequently negotiated with a contractor to save time on commissioning an entire tender process. Consequently, we were also appointed as Principal Designer under the CDM Regulations and as Contract Administrator
Together with the specification, full detailed drawings were produced to obtain accurate quotations. The works were managed under a JCT Intermediate form of contract. We also managed other consultants on the project, including structural engineers, to ensure full building regulations compliance.
The extent of damage caused by the glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) to the floors was a challenge to rectify. First, the flooring needed to be ground down, which was very labour intensive, followed by the installation of a new epoxy coating.
A bad batch of paint further exacerbated the issue, but such setbacks were successfully overcome. As a result, the units are now occupied.
