Project: Victoria Building, Media City
Refurbishment and internal fit-out of The Victoria Building, The Quays, Media City. The works comprise of the refurbishment of the reception and ground floor areas, and core areas to eight floors of which we completed the Ceilings, Partitions and Joinery packages.
The works also include improvements to the external envelope including a new entrance, improvements to the link bridge, minor external works and improvements to the multi-storey car park. Works include Cat A fit-out to the office spaces on floors five and eight, to be used as show offices for future tenants.
The project included many challenges and restrictions, including:
- Refurbishment of the link bridge - the bridge provides access to the adjacent car park and passes over the Metrolink. Works had to be carefully planned and coordinated with the planned line and road closures.
- Operational environment - many of the building's tenants remained in the building throughout the works. It was critical that we communicated the planned works and kept disruption to a minimum.
- Consideration of local neighbours - many close properties was residential. As such, we agreed with the client that no works were to take place past 5.30 pm.
Carrying out management and commercial duties including the trades for the joinery and ceiling and partitions package.
