MARTIN were appointed design and build contractors on the renovation of an existing office, administration and welfare building at NK Coatings Mallusk.
The scheme was programmed for fast track refurbishment of all office, welfare and back of house administration areas, to an industrial steelwork, galvanising and coatings factory. This entailed complete design and refurbishment of customer facing reception area, administration area, staff canteens and welfare facilities, whilst maintaining full operational functionality of the factory and outlet itself.
The scheme was condensed in to a 6 week programme in order to minimise disruption and costs to the sales and admin team, by temporary decant to temporary office accommodations during refurbishment. The 350m2 office area was completed on time, within budget and to a high standard of quality, with installation of bespoke reception counters and furniture, installation of 350m2 of tiled floor finishes, and refurbishment of a 50m2 washroom and canteen facility. The building received complete new mechanical and electrical services throughout, and was finished with all new floor finishes, suspended ceilings and redecoration. MARTIN also value engineered energy efficiency measures in the design and installation of new insulation to the walls and ceilings during fit out.
Given the busy nature of the site, effective decant from the building, combined with stringent site traffic and pedestrian management, were two key ingredients to ensuring efficiency of ongoing Client functionality, alongside construction operations, and thus ensuring the success of the project for all involved.
