Renovation and infrastructure improvements

We have undertaken two major contracts in recent years on this island site in Bow which comprises film studio accommodation within Listed brick buildings formerly used as a distillery and custom house.

Contract 1 involved extensive external and internal renovation including brickwork and rendering repairs, M&E modifications together with external redecoration. The brickwork and render repairs were scrupulously monitored by the Conservation Officer and we had to produce brick and lime mortal mix samples for approval prior to any work being undertaken. We then produced sample brick replacement and re-pointing for the Conservation Officer to inspect and agree to the methodology and standard of workmanship before the main body of work could be executed.

Contract 2 comprised the segregation of the site-wide sprinkler system from the mainland together with associated building services and architectural work. This comprised forming a piled raft base for the new tank base, new pipework, modifications to existing underground and above ground steel pipes and a new control system.
