This development, was a comprehensive refurbishment of a prominent City centre office building, along with a new-build extension of 10,000 sq. ft.
The project saw the refurbishment of the existing multi-story building to allow the creation of another story onto the building as well as a new rear multi-storey extension.
We undertook the role of both temporary works co-ordinator and temporary works engineer in order to complete this development. We were faced with some challenges during this refurbishment, which included stabilising the existing building whilst the rear elevation was removed, removal of the existing roof to then allow the construction of a new steel frame to provide another floor and new roof, and connecting the new rear structure to the existing whilst working closely with Network Rail to comply with their requirements; as the structure was close to the main London rail line and their property.
We worked closely with the site team from the start to ensure that all Network Rail protocols were met as well as other temporary works engineering designs and ensured that all checks and reviews were carried out correctly.
