Duration - 8 Weeks
Location - London
Sector - Culture

Challenges

The key challenge on this project was working with the existing structure and services. Unlike any other type of project all walls, ceilings and floors are steel up to 50mm thick so the routing and fixing of services had to be done a different way.

The existing services were extremely dated and the challenge was to adapt and add to these whilst maintaining the existing character and complying with current regulations.

Solutions

Working in close coordination with the main contractor and the client we devised bespoke solutions for the routing and fixing of services. The lighting had to be dropped down below all existing high level services to make it effective.

All cabling and supports were carefully designed and installed so as to blend in with the existing installations and also comply with the current standards.

Overall a very rewarding outcome.
