Adamson Construction was awarded the contract to erect an office extension in an existing warehouse at the rear of the building’s existing office areas. The project required the installation of two floors into a restricted head height area.
Due to the client’s requirements to keep the facilities open, the area could not be completely sealed off and the factory was in operation 24/7. The potential noise of the preparation works would mean some of these works would have to be executed out of normal working hours, to prevent disruption. The works completed for the project would result in an inevitable reduction in locker usage for the client which would need to be addressed.
The first aspect of the works was the Structural steel fabrication which was carried out off-site to minimise hot works and other associated hazards. The erection was then carried out in a safe manner. Once in place, the first fix carpentry works, joisting and floorboards as well as erection of metal stud work, first fix for electrics and air conditioning. To ensure adequate soundproofing in the offices, dry lining with 2 layers of 15mm special fire-rated boards on the outer face with 2 layers of 15mm sound block boarding was mounted on Resilient bars. This was all taped and jointed prior to decoration. Installation of FD 60 1 hour fire rated doors to the external wall. All internal doors were FD30 half an hour fire rating and were varnished. The walls were all Decorated with 3 coats of Dulux emulsion. The first floor had a suspended ceiling installed and all lighting and emergency lighting was recessed LED lighting. All Electricity fed through desk height Dado rail with a few floor sockets set in the floor and CAT 6 cables were fed to each socket. Air conditioning units fitted to every room. Carpets fitted throughout and safety nosings to all stairs. The job was finished to the client’s satisfaction and further works were completed for the client as a result.
