BUTLERS WHARF HALLS OF RESIDENCE

  • Fast track project
  • Occupied building
  • Minimal disturbance to residents was essential

Logan Construction was awarded the contract for the refurbishment of and alterations to the basement communal spaces in a halls of residence. This was a fast track project for completion within eight weeks. The scope of works involved areas in the basement of Butlers Wharf halls of residence to provide a common room, games room and computer room along with refurbishment of associated corridors.

Works included bespoke joinery and cabinetry which had to be built into the uneven walls and around obstructions and was all carried out on site by our own skilled joiners. New air conditioning was fitted along with a fully programmable mood lighting system, specialist light boxes, drinks point, bespoke computer desking and storage, dropped ceiling rafts, flooring and full redecorations.

The refurbishment of the rooms was undertaken in an efficient fashion as the residence hall is used year round by students during term time and holiday makers in non-term time. Close co-ordination between us, LSE Estates and the residence hall managers was essential to minimise disturbance to residents and allow the works to progress smoothly.
