First Landings

the brief

Our brief took the project from an existing Landlord CAT-A finish (which was fully stripped out) to their fitted out Corporate HQ in 14 weeks from appointment. Works were undertaken in a multi-tenanted office development with continual intensive daily co-ordination with the sitting Campus Management Team. Added to the time sensitive nature of the project was the Client’s “not-to-exceed” occupation date which was a key consideration in our aggressive construction programme.

Due to the high degree of cellularisation to form the various offices, meeting spaces and executive boardrooms, the mechanical scope required considerable addition to the primary Landlord ventilation provisions via. intensive upgrades, modelling and building control integration. The project scope also included a large specialist joinery component, an extensive “Town Hall” meeting space with feature exposed ceilings and feature lighting throughout, bespoke reception area, feature hard and soft flooring’s, substantial active IT solution, a fully redundant IT backbone install with UPS back up to main comms room, gymnasium installation, high-end Corporate level access control and security install, A/V delivery and a full furniture installation across the complete floor plate.
