In June 2019 we completed a 35 week Project, governed by a JCT Design & Build Contract 2016, to strip-out and refurbish all 65000ft² of the old British Leyland Daf Headquarters in Preston, for our client Gold Medal, part of the Emirates Group.
The local landmark and commercial property was originally built in 1965-66 and was in a tired state right down to the shell and core.
The client wanted to create their signature office, with a focus on wellness as well as being as eco-friendly as they could.
There were issues with the fabric of the building due to general erosion of the exterior and materials containing asbestos which had been used to construct the building.
We removed the asbestos and treated the erosion of the exterior, replaced the windows and doors and clad the roof and walls to restore the shell and core before giving the building a full Cat A and B fit-out for our client.
