New Office Fit Out

We were recommended to DACHSER and CS2 Chartered Surveyors, DACHSER’s architects, via a previous client. The project involved the complete refurbishment of their Dartford Office and the construction of a two-storey Drivers Welfare Hub within the warehouse. This included the creation and refurbishment of a range of facilities including canteens, toilets, rest areas, locker rooms and changing rooms.

With the new office, Price began by providing workspace consultancy to advise on the optimal layout for the refurbished office. Our aim with office fit-outs is to always maximise natural lighting and ventilation for a efficient and natural working environment for staff. We re-decorated the walls and ceilings, laid new carpets and soft furnishings before working with DACHSER to choose comfortable and space-efficient furniture. The results were bright, spacious areas for their drivers and office staff to use to work and relax in.

Complex M&E Work

The project included some complex mechanical and electrical initiatives with all new air conditioning, power and lighting solutions throughout. Our approach here was to source and fit economical systems which would help the business achieve lower carbon footprint targets and cost efficiencies. In addition to this electrical work, Price was asked to support the fitting of new data points and a Paxton door entry system. Security is a top priority for the warehouse so the

In addition, the project included high-level working at 9m and management of 15 team members onsite. We had 3 electricians, 6 carpenters and 2 labourers all working on the site to support the project and had to manage multiple machines including a scissor lift. Because the office needed to operate as usual, and is open 24/7, we worked with flexibility and outside of peak operational hours wherever possible to limit any impact to day to day operations for DACHSER.

The team and CS2 Chartered Surveyors were incredibly pleased with our work and that we managed to complete the project completely to budget and within their tough timelines.

 

We were recommended Price Building Consultancy thanks to their reputation for high quality office fit-out and refurbishment. We're so pleased with the outcome and our staff have all been very positive about their new working environments. I won't hesitate to recommend your team - thanks again!
