M-PACT Group were appointed to undertake the full fit out and M&E works on the 7th and 5th floors within the Atria 1 Building on behalf of Alliance Trust.
Site: Atria 1, 144 Morrison Street, Edinburgh.
The works involved an extensive refurbishment of the existing office and included a full lighting scheme installation, high-end bespoke joinery, structural Cat6 cabling and full M&E commissioning.
We were asked to install, test and commission a new cold water system and instantaneous hot water system connected into the existing BMS system.
In addition, the Mechanical and Electrical commissioning covered installation of the new air conditioning system, VRV pipe-working and fixed gas detection and alarm system complete with all plant, wiring and timeclocks linked to the BMS.
This first phase of this project (7th Floor) was secured through competitive tender. On successful delivery of these works we were invited by the design team to negotiate the second phase of the works on Level 5.
Over the years we have carried out a significant number of fit out works in prestigious offices, becoming used to handling the issues they bring. Busy live environments; restricted access for deliveries; out of hours ‘noisy works’ and so on.
Our experience of working within this setting –a multiple-occupancy modern office block –enabled us to complete the project within the tight 12-week deadline and on budget.
The objective for the client was to deliver a new office environment providing staff with a stimulating work environment.
Our integrated approach led us to working ever-closer with the design team. Without this approach it is difficult to deliver on a project such as this. The feedback received from all parties has been uniformly positive with the collaborative approach commented upon favourably.
A hand-picked team led by our now Operations Director, Dean Stevens brought a level of professionalism, expertise and innovation which went a long way towards the delivery of a high quality finish appreciated by the client.
