Another project, another industrial warehouse refurbishment!
Our latest project to commence takes us to another industrial estate, also on the outskirts of Norwich. However, unlike the last industrial unit refurbishment that we featured which has involved us working directly with the client, here we’re working with a chartered surveyor on behalf of their client. The surveyor issued a detailed specification at the project outset, which we will follow to ensure that we refurbish the warehouse back to its original condition before it can be let out to any future tenants.
A large part of any project like this involves the initial strip out works. The extent of this can vary significantly from site to site, depending on the size and way in which the unit was used by the previous tenants. In this instance, we will be removing the existing office accommodation, including ceilings, walls, windows, floors, doors, stairs and a mezzanine floor structure. This will be in addition to removing signage, fixtures and fittings in the warehouse. We arrived on site recently to begin these works, which will continue over the next few weeks.
Once the strip out is complete, we will need to replace roof lights, gutters, cladding and doors externally. Inside, we will erect suspended ceilings, and fit a new kitchen, along with flooring in both the office and warehouse areas. We’ll also decorate throughout and install a new heating system and lighting, giving the unit a complete makeover.
Enforcing social distancing, and strict health and safety procedures are vitally important given the current climate. The benefit of warehouse refurbishments like this is that their abundant size and space lends themselves well to being worked on at the present time.
