The design and construction of 8nr. high quality residential apartments in Staines as part of a conversion and change of use from office accommodation to residential. The works included extensive lightening and strengthening work to the existing structure to accommodate a 3rd-floor extension and all works were carried out above a national chain food retail outlet that had to continue to trade throughout necessitating very close liaison and control of noisy works and the like. There were very tight site constraints with a retail space below, the river to one side requiring specialist scaffold design and high street frontage imposing various restrictions on scaffold design and access arrangements. CIPS had to deliver to a tight programme managing the interface with the restaurant operator and the contractor at each stage.
