An existing two storey office, research and development and distribution facilities building located in Hedge End Southampton. The project involved the refurbishment of part of the building; upgrading existing services and the installation of additional services, with the fit out of an already built two storey extension including all new services with separate circuits from the existing and to be upgraded mechanical plantroom and main electrical switchroom.
The tenants remained within the building, continuing to operate their business with minimal disruptions from the works. This meant that all existing services were to be kept fully operational at all times with minimal down time during any changeovers.
