Consumer Goods Company
New Conference & Communications Centre
Design & Build . Refurbishment & Fit-Out
Our client for this project is a global consumer goods company that required a state-of-the-art conference facility for world-wide communication. Trustland were tasked with providing a full design & build package to fit-out a user-friendly facility that utilises the most modern technology.
Challenges and Solutions
A key requirement for the facility was to ensure that sound reduction methods were in place from room to room. To help us achieve a 55 Decibel rating, we engaged specialist sound reduction consultants. Together we designed the facility with specified materials including bespoke glazing partition walls.
We also had a tight timeline for the scale of this project. As a result, we required up to 40 different contractors to be working on-site at once. To reduce the volume of people using the welfare facilities at a given time, we introduced split breaks from the start. To reinforce safety procedures, the site manager also ensured that all contractors worked to the job-specific RAMS.
The fast-paced nature of this project meant that scope changes were commonplace. To ensure that any design changes were priced and accepted without delaying the programme, we also held weekly site meetings with the client, the Quantity Surveyor, the contracts manager & the site manager present.
Unfortunately, the project ran over the original timescales, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The client was, however, very pleased with how we handled the situation. We provided regular updates and introduced new safety procedures upon returning to the site, to ensure that we were working in the safest way possible to protect the health of our clients, employees and sub-contractors. Thankfully the project was still kept within the original budget, despite the time delay. As a result of the clients’ satisfaction, we were awarded additional work during our time on site. Which then ran as a separate contract alongside the main conference refurbishment.
“The project was run exceptionally well, communication from Trustland was excellent & despite the hurdles faced along the way, mainly that of COVID-19, Trustland still managed to deliver a world class conference facility on time & within budget.”
