Major building upgrade and re-roofing project,designed to create an attractive environment for new business tenants.
At 80,000 square feet, this is one of the largest re-roofing contracts that Pexhurst has completed. It entailed replacing an asbestoscement roof on this large brick-clad building.
All the work was complex and labour-intensive and required support from an experienced specialist asbestos consultant. Obviously the materials handling had to be managed and carried out extremely carefully, given the team was dealing with an asbestos strip of this magnitude.
Within the building, Pexhurst installed new dock levellers outside the building to improve loading and unloading. Environmental considerations were also key, with the building’s thermal performance upgraded to meet current requirements.
The building was given a whole new look, with recladding and replacement windows and shutter doors. All the improvements were designed to make the building a more attractive proposition for potential tenants.
