Office Refurbishment Contractors
As a company grows, the office environment needs to adapt to meet the ever-changing needs of the service users. The home of I.T company Intercity Technology in Birmingham had to face this predicament and in so doing, created an unusual challenge requiring the services of office refurbishment contractors.
The goal was to create better access for deliveries along with an area for storage by utilising an unused area of the ground floor carpark. Luckily, the space directly above the allocated area is a flat roof made up of a beam and block structure. It sits outside of the main footprint of the building and is ideally suited to receiving both the proposed lift, staircase and building extension, whilst giving access to deliveries to the first floor.
The alterations include:
- Stripping out the existing carpark concrete slab, installing another one fit for purpose
- Foundations to take the newly formed walls
- Installation of a steel staircase
- Installation of lift
- Creation of a first-floor extension to house both the staircase and lift
- Creation of a covered walkway providing access to the first floor
- Mechanical alterations
As with any job of this nature, keeping the dust and noise to acceptable levels is a real challenge requiring a strong management team, proper channels of communication and excellent planning.
The architect heading up the project is Tristan Plant of Lapworth Architects, a company that we have worked with on previous projects.
Any office fit-out presents its unique challenges. The job at Intercity Technology involved quite a few structural alterations with substantial steel sections to trim the newly formed stair and lift shaft openings. With the additional extension to the first floor and formation of a corridor to the roof section, we’ve created a solution to a problem that fit within the clients budget while giving the access required.”
No doubt our site manager Dennis Mcdaid is looking forward to working with the Intercity onsite team to expedite this challenging office fitout.
