Background: The Lidl store in Dagenham tasked us with taking an empty unit and creating additional office space. The scope of works included installation of new meeting rooms upstairs and downstairs, ground floor toilets and a bespoke staircase tying the space together.
Assessment of the building showed that the initial hurdle to overcome was the installation of the mezzanine floor that would support the upstairs area as this was a void space. We installed a large birdcage scaffolding to enable staff to gain access to higher areas, install the floor and begin creating the meeting room space until the staircase was to be installed.
Access to our working area was through the rear of the store’s delivery area and here we had to ensure our works did not interfere with the day to day running of the store, the staff and deliveries to the store continued unencumbered throughout the entirety of our programme.
The project was completed successfully, on time and on budget.
