Signia Turn Key have recently completed the refurbishment of upper floors to The Square in Richmond, Surrey. The building originally dates back to 1890 and was originally the Imperial public house; a plaque high on the outer wall is all that remains with the pub being replaced with retail units (the ground floor currently houses the local branch of Nationwide Building Society) in the 1980s.
Working with the client’s architects, DBLO, Signia developed the specification and cost plan from architectural drawings to include:
- Full strip out of the floor space, lavatories, common parts and main entrance lobby.
- Demolition of supporting walls and installation of new steels to open up the floor plate.
- A new electrical system with and CAT6e cabling was installed throughout with a service M&E cupboard installed on each floor.
- The existing electric heating system was removed and replaced with an integrated Air Conditioning and Heating system throughout.
- New plumbing for kitchenette, lavatories and showers were also installed on each floor.
- The roof was overhauled and roof access was improved with new roof guard rails installed to meet current regulations.
- The main entrance was completely refurbished to included new main door with inner lobby doors for access to upper floors. A new entry access system was also installed along with a fire alarm system throughout.
- All areas were stripped back, re decorated, carpeted leaving the client with a fresh new building ready for letting.
