Another challenge for the construction team was laid down by the client for the refurbishment and installation of coffee bar within a government building, the works had to be completed over a weekend to minimize the disruption.
The works involved detailed surveying of the areas for the joinery to be installed to allow the offsite fabrication of the counters and benches so to allow the installation to install the works in the minimum amount of time and less on site fabrication. This included a new front counter back bar including the installation of mechanical and electrical services. And all the equipment to run the coffee bar.
All the services had to be routed from a central point to the new counters than run and tested in place all within the 48 hour period allowed. Again we succeeded in completing the works on time and within budget.
Our construction team stated that this was a difficult contract due to the amount of bespoke joinery and the tight time frame but forward planning and close liaison with the client helped us achieve the end result.
