PROJECT DESCRIPTION

ADCO were awarded a contract to refurbish the Headquarters of Glanbia Plc. in Kilkenny. The overall scope of the work included demolition of a number of loadbearing block walls to provide open plan office areas, installation of steel supports, removal and replacement of floor coverings, suspended ceilings and complete redecoration of all of the ground floor offices, circulation areas and first floor circulation areas. The reception area was completely refurbished and extended with the installation of curtain walling a circle slide door at the main entrance and glass walls internally. The canteen was also completely refurbished. Air conditioning cassette units and new data cabling were installed throughout the building and wiring was replaced to all the ground floor offices while the building remained in use by Glanbia.

Challenges Faced
- The building was fully occupied by a staff of over 80 people for the duration of the project and on a daily basis meetings were being held by Glanbia personnel and clients.
- All noise generating work had to be carried out before 08am and after 07pm which entailed working night shifts.
- The week that Phase 1 was due to be handed over a major change to the stairs access to first floor from reception was introduced but ADCO managed to handover on date agreed.
 
Innovations
- It was agreed to carry out the work in 3 phases. For Phase 1 the reception area and a number of offices were temporarily relocated to 2 meeting rooms. On completion of this phase one of the meeting rooms was then used as a temporary canteen while the other was used by staff whose offices were being upgraded under phase 2.
- Phase 3 was the upgrading of the circulation areas and agreement was reached with the client that this work could commence prior to completion of phase 2 on the understanding that the majority of the work be carried out in the evenings and that there would be no disruption to the client by the work being carried out during the day.

Successes
- The project was completed within a very tight programme of 14 weeks.
- There was minimal disruption to the Glanbia operation.
- The staff are very happy with their new offices and particularly their canteen.
- We have been advised that ADCO will be invited to tender any future refurbishment work in Glanbia offices.other small works and upgrade projects for the client.
