We were contracted by Wallace Space Ltd. Following successful quotation LGG conducted a three phase refurbishment project to their Covent Garden Site in Central London.
The work was set out in three phases to allow Wallace Space to continue trading during the refurbishment with works carried out over the Christmas period in order to keep disruption to a minimum. Subject to a very tight schedule all three phases of the project were completed on time.
Acoustic Partition Walls and Ceilings
Phase One consisted of the refurbishment of an additional open plan space in their existing building. Initial work saw the installation of a new DB acoustic ceiling which gave maximum sound insulation. Installation of wall dryline system to divide the existing open space into x4 meeting rooms. Using proprietary materials, the plasterboards used were the most cost effective to be sourced and the acoustic insulation used was formed of a material derived from recycled plastic.
Each new meeting room was fitted with Air Conditioning units which were sourced from
those located elsewhere in the building and re-
The additional x2 new air conditioning units supplied were chosen for their energy efficient values, being inverter units they benefit from having lower start up power surges compared with some other A/C units giving reduced cost of operation against time.
Each room was fitted with new energy efficient light fittings which had twin features
of being both daylight fluorescent and directional spot. The new light fittings were
complementary to the existing fittings in other meeting rooms, while being more efficient
and still cost effective there was no sacrifice to style and functionality. Savings
were made by re-
Calculations were made to the existing power ring main and reconfiguration was carried out to the socket outlets to suit the new meeting rooms layout.
Data Network and Servers
A new CAT5e Network of data points was installed across the new meeting room’s layout; cost savings were made by keeping the number of data points to a minimum.
Given the long term relationship of support to this client LGG were aware of their
desire to achieve a reliable wireless network. We have previously installed CISCO
wireless routers in both of Wallace Space sites. Following planning of exact locations
we created a very reliable WI-
A new position for the Comms cabinets was required so re-
Décor of the x4 new rooms was carried out by our own decorating team, and with their significant experience and interest in the development of new tools and products for decorating trade we were able to keep the costing very competitive. We were able to carry out the decorating at speed through the use of airless spraying equipment to cover large areas at a time and leave a superb finish to the project.
Work on phase 2 and 3 consisted of creating more letting space for Wallace, again taking into consideration the customer’s needs in creating comfortable, functional and stylish meeting rooms to be let. Each phase was completed on schedule and handed over on the agreed date allowing Wallace Space to fulfil the bookings they had already taken on the seven new rooms.
All rooms were finished to customer satisfaction and the stylish fresh rooms complete with low energy media flat screens installed have been very popular with their customers.
