Works were recently completed on the internal refurbishment and fit-out of the Headquarters of the Defence Academy of the UK.
The original building had undergone numerous disparate modifications over a number of years. The works involved significant structural re-modelling, the installation of two new platform lifts, new structured cabling, IT installation and NER Room, automatic fire detection, emergency lighting, alterations to power, heating, ventilation and drainage systems, DDA improvements and general refurbishment works to provide a modern office environment.
Despite the majority of the works being undertaken in occupation the project was delivered on time and under budget. The building was officially opened by the Director General, the highest ranking military officer at the Academy. As a result of the successful completion of the project our client was awarded with two official commendations from the Director General for their achievements, which reflected the efforts of the entire project team.
