In order to achieve maximum return on potential lettings, these works had to be carried out whilst the rest of the building was fully occupied. Miller were appointed to remodel and refurbish the ground floor of this six-storey office building.
Part of the ground floor was developed for retail use, including a Sainsbury’s Local and new restaurant. Two of the office suites have been designed for alternative A1 retail use and D1 medical facility. The remaining office suites were fitted out for SME office occupation including all electrical, mechanical and plant services. External alterations included the installation of black glass cladding; glazed shop fronts and new external entrance doors to each unit.
The building is located on a very busy corner site adjacent a red route road, and the works completed during the 2012 Olympics. The other five floors remained in occupation throughout the works and it was imperative that our works did not disrupt the existing tenants. This was achieved through careful planning and phased programming together with regular dialogue with tenants. Despite having to break out significant structure, the project was completed without a single complaint of nuisance/noise, and Miller were commended for their approach to mitigation of the potential impact to ongoing business.
