CLIENT: Orchard St Investment Management
VALUE: £7m

The project is a fit out of an existing office building. The building has been stripped including the external envelope to the original RC frame. Major structural works have been completed to change the entrance location including a new mezzanine floor. The building has been clad in a mixture of brickwork, curtain walling and glass reinforced concrete.

The internal fit out captures the original details including the barrelled roof which involves intricate plaster work. This project is BREEAM excellent.

The area is 120 metres long and 52,000 sq ft.

The estimated project value was initially circa £9m which put the project under risk of not being actioned at all.

SOLUTION

We worked closely with the client’s team to provide creative solutions that value engineered down to the contract sum.

RESULT

We reduced the overall price down by £2.3 down to £6.7 which allowed the project to commence.
