Client: The London Preschool
Programme: 16 weeks
Contract: JCT 2011 Design and Build
Description: Alteration and Fit Out
Alteration and fast-track fit-out of a new build empty commercial unit to provide a Nursery School including teaching, office and ancillary accommodation.
Works included completion of internal walls, adaption of curtain walling, raised access floor, installation of new mechanical and electrical services, ceilings, finishes, and external works including landscaping.
Challenges on the project included time critical completion, tight access restraints and flats above the site being in occupation.
The removal of a reinforced concrete planter on top of a service car park required 40 tonnes of soil removed by hand, bagged, and barrowed to the front of the building for disposal. The sides of the planter were then carefully demolished using crushing ‘jaws’ to ‘crunch’ the concrete to ensure no damage was done by vibration to the rest of the structure.
“Extremely excellent performance on a very tight timescale. Lengard focus on the client’s needs entirely. Problems arise on every project – where Lengard excel is in delivering finish solutions and keeping to schedule and budget.”
William Zuckerman, Chief Executive Officer, The London Preschool
