The Project

Pacy and Wheatley Interiors have completed an Interior Fit Out project in Shoreham for Albox Services. The client purchased an existing unit which was a former soft drinks facility. The particular building had been empty for some time and needed major renovation works to be done including a new roof, external cladding and new drainage. A full demolition of the existing internal blockwork and offices took place before a new Mezzanine floor was installed, making the storage facility ground and first floor. Pacy & Wheatley then commenced the fit out of the unit which consisted of building 2 new fire staircases, the formation of a new external reception, this was required so that the storage space could be maximised. New toilets and rest room were installed to include the formation of a number of meeting rooms. We also formed a new loading area which included a facility for 24 hour access by means of a set of auto sliding doors and key pad secure entrance system. Health and safety on this project needed to be of the highest order as there were also a number of nominated other trades such as Mezzanine floor fitters, Electricians and Lift installation engineers working on site, some at high level. The effective way in which the site was managed from a health and safety perspective resulted in zero accidents throughout the whole project.

The Solution

The issue on this project were that we had a substantial amount of external repair works to carry out prior to the main fit out commencing which needed to be completed very quickly in order to be able to work safely inside the building. We also had to work alongside the Mezzanine installers, Electricians and lift installers, the new roof was also being installed at the same time. This resulted in various logistical meetings to ensure all trades could work together to progress the project to programme in a safe and timely fashion. We had weekly meetings with all the various package contractors in attendance along with the appointed Architect and client which was essential to ensure that the project achieved handover to the store on time. This project commenced and completed in 13 weeks and was most challenging but with everyone pulling together the end goal was achieved on time and on budget and to the clients satisfaction.
