Continuing our successful relationship with Global Holdings Management Group we are progressing with the fit out of the ground floor reception and main entrance, plus brining levels 2 to 6 to CAT-A standard.
In addition to the approximately 63,000 sq ft of fit out works, the Curo Construction team were also instructed to build a two-storey commuter building, with shower, drying and changing facilities for users of the existing office at 210 Pentonville Road commercial office.
The project had its own inherent challenges with being situated on the busy Pentonville Road and close to Kings Cross Station. Additionally, the building had remained live, with both commercial and residential occupants, which meant the team had to develop varying strategies and dynamic processes to avoid any disruptions to local stakeholders.
As part of the team’s commitment to the local community they established early in the construction period, clear lines of communication with the building stakeholders including the FM team, residents, neighbours and the local authorities, to ensure all were aware of planned works guaranteeing a smooth journey was had by all. As part of the build strategy noisy works were conducted “out of hours”. A 6-level hoist and mini pit lane were also created so that deliveries were almost invisible from the front of the building, testament to the team’s “invisible contractor” ethos. The reception works included the installation of a bespoke glass-block reception desk accompanied with new lighting systems and services to match. In addition, the area was modernised and refurbished with the creation of bespoke wall hangings to dominate the space and new Panbetton Shui wall cladding installed for a refreshed appearance. The upper levels of the projects benefited from improved and additional MEP services, new SAS ceiling and acoustic matting for improved sound deadening.
