Works also involved amenity rooms having a complete HVAC upgrade, alongside the complete redecoration of stairwells, breathing new life into the communal spaces. Alongside development of living spaces, the project consisted of structural, mechanical, and electrical works, including the installation of a mezzanine floor and bespoke joinery and finishes throughout. To ensure the seamless delivery of high specification works, over 120 Fortis Vision team members were on-site at peak times, working closely together to overcome the logistical challenges of the busy inner-city location, with regular changes of strategy.
Team members used an inner courtyard of the adjoining student buildings to erect industrial marquees for storage solutions, and the local doctor’s surgery was consulted so that the car park could be used for additional delivery storage. When lifts failed, the team created a human supply chain in the stairwell, to ensure refurbishment supplies reached the correct floors in a timely manner. The final section of the project involved transforming the seventh floor into a private dining area, with a lounge space, study room and pool room.
Despite challenges, the team delivered the project on time, on budget and in line with the exceptionally high standards that we are recognised for.
