    Our expertise

    PREAH were involved from the initial conception of the project through to completion and handover. We provided fully designed drawings based on heat loss calculations of the fabric of the building. And all the systems were custom designed to suit the client’s needs – both in terms of functional suitability and programming of the works.


    The challenges

    Working in an operational commercial office always provides challenges. We had to carefully programme the works to ensure minimal disruption to staff. To do so, we split the project into five phases – and then delivered ahead of schedule.

    The office building itself was nearly 60 years old, which meant we had to complete additional supporting works – including suspended ceiling replacement and groundworks.

    PREAH worked closely with us to ensure deliverable programmes and possible cost savings through smarter working. In addition, PREAH’s site labour were a real credit to the company. Professional and hardworking at all times.

    I look forward to working with PREAH in the future.
