This project represented a full conversation from office space to a brand-new Job Centre at the heart of a busy retail trading estate, in Yate.
Client | DWP & Sodexo
Project Duration | 6 Weeks
The DWP, Yate site presented many build challenges to note. Asbestos was identified underneath the floor where extraction would have meant an extremely costly route to pursue as well as effecting an extremely delayed completion date. We proposed a full floor screed to seal off the asbestos, presenting real cost and time efficiencies. Further to this a large hole was uncovered within the roof slab, which required a structural survey to be catered for within the programme. The M&E design (supplied by client directs) contained an issue and had to be modified while we worked hand in hand with the suppliers to resolve it. Despite these issues we were able to keep the project on course, by keeping a tight rein on the programme, proposing business critical resolutions and ensuring minimal slippage as opposed to a delay that could have impacted business proceedings greatly.
