The Challenge

first Recladding Project Undertaken: Friars House is a office block that was converted into a Residential building in 2015, with one additional floor added. The building totals 5 storey’s (8 storey’s including the shopping centre) and is constructed over an existing shopping centre and now contains 71 residential apartments. When the Building was converted from Offices to Residential the building was over-clad with ACM and a EPS render system. Whilst occupied, this project undertook works to replace the potential combustible cladding on the external elevations with materials in line with Approved Document B December 2018 Revision, post-Grenfell.

The Solution

Undertook extensive cross checking with physical inspections. Understand how the occupiers use and plot trends whilst planning operational delivery around these patterns. Plan ahead with extensive logistical solutions in place and test these prior to undertaking any works.

The Results

Adapted to ever evolving Covid CLC working practices – worked closely with the client to ensure minium disruption experienced. Customer stated: Excellent communication all through the design and construction phases
