Description: Enabling Works and full Office Fit Out for Apleona Office, Motherwell
The scope of work quickly changed from a strip out and enabling works package to a full office fit out, with additional elements being negotiated. Working to a tight timescale and with occupied offices adjacent to the site, access and egress was carefully managed by organising deliveries of materials and equipment outside normal office hours.
The works included excavation of an existing stairwell and the design and installation of a new steel staircase. Live services were re-routed, allowing the utility companies to provide services upgrades.
The main a Distribution Board, located in the basement and servicing the whole building, was upgraded, including a full electrical upgrade. This required weekend shutdown and the provision of temporary power.
Mechanical ventilation was installed to all areas. The fit out works included opening up and formation of new lobby area and stairwell from lower ground to ground floors, installation of raised access flooring, perimeter gyproc walls, fireproofing all steel columns and beams and MF ceilings. Joinery work included new doors and ironmongery, window cills and timber skirting . Male and Female and disabled toilets received new cubicles and an IPS system. Ames taping and decoration completed the work.
