8,000 sq. ft.
Phoenix Construction Services, Interiors Division were approached by project managers Colliers International to undertake a refurbishment of a single floor for Kinetic, part of the WPP Group of companies.
Kinetic work very diligently to bring forward the future of Out-of-Home communications for brands. Using intelligence, technology and creativity they assist their clients to communicate with valuable audiences on the move.
The company had agreed to take over an existing built space from a departing company. The office environment required a small refurbishment and repositioning of brand identity, allied with creating new private offices, break out areas, and refreshing parts of the office that were subject to wear and tear from the previous tenant.
The project was negotiated utilising a design and build contract accompanied with ‘Employers Requirements’ and drawings provided.
Phoenix ensured that there was full transparency of the cost and programme, allied with a dedicated and a strategic works programme, construction site map including logistics supported by a comprehensive methodology to execute the project. Given that we were working in-situ, every effort was made to protect all existing fixtures and fittings whilst the refurbishment programme was undertaken.
The project was successfully completed on time, despite a significant delay due to a site shutdown during the COVID-19 lockdown. We had to effectively recommence the project, post-lockdown, to subsequently complete the project.
