WDI were appointed via the SCAPE framework to undertake the strip out & demolition of major structural elements, installation of new UKPN substation and full Cat A office fit out of 4-14 Tabernacle Street.
The building had been unoccupied for 2 years when WDI commenced on site. There are 5 floors including a basement. Works included raised access floor installation, lift replacement, new toilet cores on each floor, ceilings are decorated but the structural slab remains exposed with services fixed direct, window replacement and the elevations overclad. The 1st floor terrace was fitted with artificial grass whilst the addition of 3 walk on roof lights provided light into otherwise dark corners of the basement and ground floor. Structural alterations included stair removals, forming access holes in slabs and creating new window openings.
- The removal of asbestos, diesel storage tank, old car lift and decommissioning of the old sub-station with limited access to street level.
- The boiler room area was significantly altered with new foundations and steel work installed to create the new reception area.
- The installation of a hidden disabled lift which rises out of the floor involved 3 companies working together to create a one off solution.
- All the windows were replaced and the rear elevation was fully rendered.
- A new substation built in the basement whilst complying to UKPN requirements & maximising lettable space for the client.
