Pexhurst has brought the building up to modern standards and refurbished services so that the premises can potentially be subdivided by future tenants.

In an £835,000, 18-week contract, Pexhurst has carried out an extensive refurbishment, including a major renovation of the roof, the creation of improved offices and industrial space, the replacement of the heating system, new electrical wiring and lighting, upgraded fire alarms, new bathrooms and WCs and an overhaul of the reception area. The result is bang-up-to-date facilities, with high-quality fixtures and fittings.

Health and safety has been an important consideration throughout, particularly at roof level where working at height and the number of rooflights has necessitated careful risk assessment. The unpredictable wet winter weather also proved a challenge. With the roof work requiring safety nets internally, any delays would have put back the start of the renovation of the warehouse floor, which took two weeks to complete due to its large area. The team also carried out extensive drainage repairs, groundwork elements and tarmac works.

Pexhurst has taken all challenges in its stride and delivered an impressive upgrade to previously tired premises – a mighty show of industrial strength.
