Our Client had an in-going Tenant ready to take occupation of Unit 2 following the previous tenant upgrading to a larger unit on the site. Remnants of previous tenant fit-out remained in situ and the in-going tenant required a scope of works to be undertaken prior to their occupation. This presented us with a small time window to undertake this scope of works and remove an existing signage tower to the front of the unit as part of a larger rejuvenation scheme for the site.
We were unaware of the structural impact the signage tower posed to the front façade of the unit, as we had limited structural information at pre-tender stage due to time constraints. CS2 engaged with a structural engineer and co-ordinated with the winning contractor to undertake a series of intrusive investigations, which confirmed the tower only posed a minor impact and was able to be successfully removed without affecting the use of the wider site.
In addition, the roof required further works than previously anticipated due to the extent deterioration to the gutters and roof sheets once the signage tower was removed; this required the gutters to be relined instead of recoated and additional roof sheets to be replaced. Despite the extra items the project was delivered to the original completion date and to the satisfaction of the in-going tenant and client.
CS2 specified the works, co-originated with the contractor, an appointed structural engineer, building control and local planning to achieve the in-going tenant’s scope and removal the dated signage tower, which is part of a larger rejuvenation project for the site, which CS2 is managing. The project for Unit 2 was delivery on time and within the initial budget for the works, with the tenant able to take occupation on their proposed date.
