Commercial Offices – Slough
Slough is a truly diverse town which amongst things is home to the largest industrial estate in single private ownership in Europe.
There are many demands on public services and the staff at the Borough Council. Recently we were appointed as Principal Contractors for the complete refurbishment of the council offices located near the centre of the town.
A complete electrical and mechanical overhaul of a building of this size brings many challenges, the ‘cranage’ involved in replacing the air handling units on the roof was just one. The big challenge when you are working in a building that is still very much in daily use and fully staffed is logistical.
We approached the project in seven distinct phases. The building stretches over three floors and is comprised of two separate wings with six open plan offices. Each of these offices constituted a phase as did the Reception area.
We are still working in Slough, on schedule and with minimum disruption of essential client activities.
