Duration: 20 Weeks
SOL Services was appointed by Interserve to create additional parking, stores facilities and offices for DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) in Weybridge, Surrey.
We were involved from an early stage in the project, including carrying out ground surveys, CBR and soil testing, and identifying utility services. We worked with the architect and structural engineers to produce working drawings and also liaised with Building Control to ensure all works were certified and signed off to current UK Building Regulations. Being located in a multi-user site, the project involved comprehensive traffic management to maintain safe vehicle access and provide safe routes for pedestrians. The works involved:
Car park: Groundworks, drainage, kerbing and asphalt surfacing, design and installation of car park lighting including electrics and lighting columns and installation of height restriction barriers.
Office Building: Design and installation of new composite panel building, including structural slab, lightning protection, mezzanine floor with handrail and loading gate, plus a complete fit-out of the building including lighting, emergency lighting, fire alarm, demountable insulated offices with carpets, ceilings and electrics.
The project was completed on-time and within budget, with high levels of satisfaction from both the client and building users.
