The Project

J.P.Wild was appointed principal contractor for one of our largest ever awarded commercial projects, at this 24,455 sq ft three-storey office building. The project brief covered the full refurbishment of the building’s common areas, ground and second floor open plan offices, a new feature entrance and other general refurbishment works.

In addition to our design and build obligations we worked with the client team in the early stages of the project, to identify value engineering for the benefit of the client both in terms of capital efficiencie, but also reduced operational running costs.

Of significance was the continued occupancy of the first floor throughout the entire project by Sodexo, the existing tenant.

their continuation of service including access, emergency egress and remaining fully serviced in terms of heating, cooling and power was a major logistical feature of this project.

Our ‘owner-operator’, non-contractual approach allowed us to get the project quickly underway. This structure afforded us the ability to act on a letter of intent, rather than awaiting signed contracts which then allowed us to mobilise and begin site works without delay.

Following a week long mobilisation period, 6 months of on-site works began in October 2018. By January 2019, the second floor works had already reached practical completion and were handed over to the client, allowing an internal fit-out to be undertaken by the new tenant, Countryside Properties. The first and second floors became a live environment while Phase 2 work continued on the ground floor. We managed not only our works but the safe passage of the building occupants.

In-house M&E services – This collaborative integrated partnership focused approach to project delivery indicates how we plan to manage complex design and build solutions in the future.

Following lessons learnt from recent projects, this was the first project in which we have been wholly responsible for procuring and delivering mechanical and electrical (M&E) works. These included a new BMS system to incorporate both new and existing plant, new VRF system, ventilation re-modelling, full electrical distribution upgrades as well as new landlord and tenant sub-metering throughout.

This recently acquired in-house capability enables us to take full control of supply chains and deliver cost savings, while providing clients with enhanced confidence about their requirements being delivered on time and within budget.
