During the 9 week fit out, WDI built new cellular offices, meeting rooms, showers, kitchen areas, print hubs, breakout areas, post rooms and storage rooms. In addition, we created a brand new reception area, complete with a business lounge. Whilst the building was still occupied, we stripped down existing fixtures, fittings, surfaces and areas to bring them to an acceptable standard. The 4th floor flooring was also stripped out and replaced with new carpet.
To achieve the higher SKA grading, we carried out additional works which involved reusing or recycling furniture from previous offices. This included chairs, work stations, meeting tables and storage units. To reduce energy consumption, new lighting controls, efficiency and water reduction technology was introduced – each product being chosen from the Government’s energy and water technology lists to fulfil the SKA Gold Rating requirements.
