Design & Build Project

ADCO were awarded a contract to design, manage and construct a 10,000 sq/ft fit-out within a live office building on the 3rd floor, providing services for the open plan space, office and meeting rooms, fitted kitchenette/canteen area plus Mains IT Comms room, to include installation of Access Security, Fire Suppression, AC Cooling, UPS & Generator Backups.

Challenges Faced

  • Working within a live environment around other end users.
  • Restrictive access/egress for heavy plant and equipment installation.
  • Daily communication of works between Tenants and Landlord Representative to ensure no works impact or down time for other users.
  • Programme of works was condensed from 8 weeks to 6 weeks necessary to meet the client’s requirements.


  • Re-design of the AC system to eliminate the costs for road closure licenses and cranage providing a cost saving to the client’s budget.
  • Re-design of Comms/Canteen and meeting rooms’ locations to reduce M&E costs in pipe and electrical runs without impacting on the general overall design and brief, again a cost saving to the client’s budget.


  • The project was completed 1 week ahead of the 6 week programme which allowed the clients IT team commence PC and programming installation.
  • There was minimal disruption to the operation of the building and its tenants.
