PROJECT DESCRIPTION

ADCO were contracted to complete alteration works on Belfius Bank’s ground floor office. Works included complete office fit-outs to the ground floor, installation of a new kitchen, as well as the design and construction of a wet room in accordance with new Building Regs 2010.

Challenges Faced
- Verification testing had to be completed to all M&E services and a detailed dilapidation report prepared prior to commencing works on site.
- The building was occupied by existing tenants, which meant specific invasive activities had to be coordinated out of hours within an already tight program.
- Limited access to comprehensive as-built service drawings made M&E coordination even more difficult. All existing services had to be protected and maintained as they served several businesses on the upper floors.
- Tanking concrete floors to the shower and kitchen proved difficult because of the amount of existing HVAC and electrical services, which had to be relocated.
 
Technologies
- The complete refurbishment and upgrade of internal finishes throughout the ground floor offices included the installation of Bene single glazed office partitions.
- The refurbishment also included the installation of state-of-the-art Eco FCU units complementing the heating and cooling arrangements for the new tenant.
- The scope of works included a complete new M&E installation. Part of this was a heating installation integrated with the existing system serving all five floors of the building. The output on each floor had to be tested and recorded prior to any works commencing. A controlled rebalancing of the system had to be carried out on completion to confirm the correct distribution of heat output to each floor.
- A new communications room was fitted-out to include fire suppression.

Successes
- The project was delivered within budget and on time, allowing the client to move in immediately.
- There were no reportable accidents.
- Based on ADCO’s attention to detail and excellent relationship with the client, ADCO have since completed other small works and upgrade projects for the client.
