MacConvilles Surveying are delighted to announce the recent conclusion of a London Bridge office refurbishment, undertaken in order to provide an agile working environment.
Office space in London is currently at a premium, according to Oktra, as the uncertainty of Brexit curtails the building of new office blocks. It is likely that companies will soon be struggling to find new offices for their business activities, with investors finding it difficult to gauge the future of our economic environment. With that in mind, building owners are keen to make the most of the space they already have and refurbishing schemes such as the one MacConvilles recently completed are likely to become more popular.
The cutting-edge renovations were carried out over a period of twenty-five weeks. The client was eager to make better use of their five-storey building, which provided designated working areas for each and every member of staff, despite the high levels of home-working. Less than half of all desks were used on a regular basis and 35% were rarely used at all.
Providing project management, contract administration, designing, quantity surveying and M&E services, MacConvilles worked with Crofton and 21 Construction to provide more space for collaboration and support. The aim was to maximise the efficiency of the building, while ensuring staff were still able to enjoy the new flexible working environment.
Each floor was treated individually, taking five weeks to complete. When one floor was finished, office
equipment was transferred up, in order to empty the next floor ready for work to begin. Covering 23,000sq ft in total, the project was delivered within a tight deadline, £35k under budget and with minimal disruption to ongoing business.
Ben Coombs, MacConvilles director, said, “It is a pleasure to be involved in this central London project – updating and refreshing this building to provide a high-quality, state-of-the-art office space.”
