Project Story

We were truly proud to be awarded this project, won under the iESE framework, to carry out pre-construction services for the Cockcroft Building and develop the design brief in conjunction with our project partners. We agreed with a design proposal including a complete strip-out on each floor, followed by a comprehensive refurbishment over 10 storeys. All the existing windows were replaced with new insulation and finishes installed on the existing roofs. A timber decking system created new terraces at the 8th floor, enhanced by the installation of new balustrades together with a brise soleil.
Project Outcomes
  • New services provided throughout
  • BIM level 1 implemented during the refurbishment
  • The works took place while the building remained in occupation.
