Project: The strip-out, remodelling and fit-out of a serviced office block.

Cost: £1M

The complete strip out, remodelling and fitting-out out of the 18,500 sq ft ground floor of this 3-storey building to provide serviced flexible office and meeting spaces. The works also included the creation of communal areas such as breakout spaces, shared kitchens, and dining facilities. In addition, repairs and refurbishment of the external façade were undertaken (from ground floor to roof soffit level), along with the remodelled and refurbished internal courtyard area and new external signage.

The opportunity

The opportunity was to develop this self-contained office building, acquired by our client, located in a prime position on Newcastle Business Park, overlooking the River Tyne, to provide much needed, high quality, managed and flexible office space. Owing to the regular shape of the building, redevelopment works could be phased, on a floor-by-floor basis, allowing areas to be occupied at the earliest opportunity.

The challenge

Detailed planning and stakeholder engagement was required to allow building users to continue to operate on the upper floors during the 12-week programme of work. Out of hours working was necessary for noisy operations, dust control and material handling. Access to the communal entrance had to be maintained throughout the project, which meant that segregation between the works and the operational area needed to be carefully planned and well presented on site, including signage and safe walkways.

The outcome

The project was successfully completed on time, on budget and to the required quality standards, which enabled our client to commence their business operations as scheduled. The high occupancy rates following completion of the works are a further measure of the successful outcome of this project.
