Service: Contract Administration
Location: West One, Newcastle City Centre
Client: Area Estates Ltd
We were appointed by Area Estates Ltd to manage refurbishment works at West One office building in Newcastle city centre.
The £300,000 works included the following:
- Complete encapsulation of the metal profiled roof and concrete balconies with Alumasc Exteriors liquid waterproof membrane, as well as new paving to the balcony areas.
- Maintenance and repairs of the render to the front elevation of the building.
- External decoration to low level elements of the front elevation and retaining walls.
The key challenge we had to overcome with this project related to access due to the height of the building and it being multi-occupied. In order to complete the works specialist access equipment in the form of access cradles were used on the building. Air Conditioning works were also required to enable access under the roof top gantry to coat the main roof covering.
Despite the additional challenges of Covid-19, the works have been successfully completed over the course of the year whilst remaining safe and compliant throughout.
