The works followed a design consultation period, where the client specified they wanted the original features to be retained but updated, which also prolonged their life through specialist conservation techniques. The construction phase was carried out whilst the premises were occupied, requiring us to plan work streams around the occupants’ needs and requirements. As such, small adjustments to the programme on an ongoing basis. Through close effective management of staff and material resources, the project was delivered on time and to budget.
