The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is universally respected and needs little introduction to their work in caring for the memory and records of those fallen servicemen and women of the two World Wars. So, to be awarded a contract to refurbish the Director General’s office accommodation at their head office in Maidenhead was an exceptional honour and privilege.
The main contractor for this project was West Bromwich based SAC Services Limited and working in partnership with them, we were able to offer a wraparound provision including a complete strip out and renovation of the organisation’s headquarters.
Sales Director, Brian Lees commented, “This was a well planned and executed project, delivering a high standard of finish, completed on time and within budget. Working alongside other nominated sub-contractors, The Redditch Partitions & Storage Co. Ltd., provided a first class, CAT B fit out, creating a new, pristine and modern office environment.”
The Redditch Partitions & Storage Co. Ltd’s involvement comprised three distinct elements:
1. Site preparation including the removal of carpet tiles, ceilings and ceiling tiles then providing protective coverings to preserve the integrity of the walls and floor.
2. To provide site accommodation and welfare facilities for installers, site management and making provision for the disposal of waste material and general housekeeping. In addition, creating a food and drink preparation area.
3. The major part of the contract was the installation of sound reducing, metal stud partitioning and frameless glass partitioning, the replacement of the suspended ceilings, floor tiling and finally decoration within the office.
Miscellaneous work included alterations to the position of the existing air-conditioning units, installing a fire-rated barrier into ceiling voids and the submission of an application, on behalf of the client, for Building Regulation approval.
The Redditch Partitions & Storage Co. Ltd., provides complete turnkey installations. We take the issue of Health & Safety within the business and on our client’s premises very seriously. To reinforce our commitment we have held ‘Accredited Contractor’ status with SafeContractor since 2007.
