CASE STUDY – FRED SMITH & SONS (MOTORBODIES), WEST BROMWICH

The Client:

Fred Smith & Sons (Motorbodies) Sams Lane, West Bromwich. B70 7EG. 

The Project:

The main reception for Fred Smith & Sons was connected to the adjacent Operations office separated by a loadbearing masonry wall.

The client wanted to integrate the two operations by removing the separating wall and make it an open plan and more welcoming space.

ABC took on the turnkey role to obtain structural calculations and provide working drawings to ensure the wall was removed safely together with the installation of a new steel beam to support the upper floor.

The area was taken back to the building shell following the removal of the suspended ceiling, lighting and cabling.

The refurbishment included new flooring, decorations, suspended ceiling, LED lighting and data/power cabling to the relocated reception desk.

To complete the make over ABC supplied a new reception desk to match in with new height adjustable desking for the Operations Team.

 

The project was completed on budget and within the 2-week programme.

Walls and ceilings were painted in lighter shades to give a fresher look and to compliment the ‘Melody Grey’ cubicle and vanity unit range.

AMEC FOSTER WHEELER, SHREWSBURY

The Client: 

AMEC Foster Wheeler offer consultancy, engineering, project management, operations and construction services, project delivery and specialised power equipment services to a worldwide customer base. They have more than 160 years of history, employ around 35,000 people and operate in more than 55 countries. 

The Project: 

As part of their strategic plan to introduce SMART working, it was recognized that the existing space at Canon Court, Shrewsbury would be too large for future requirements and that space on the first floor could be returned to the landlord.

SMART working would introduce a fundamental change in the way people would be expected to operate within the office environment. Archiving of documents would be encouraged to reduce the amount of on-site filing, personal desk pedestals were removed and replaced with individual lockers and a clear desk policy was introduced. Whilst it was recognized that some people would need an allocated desk, the remainder would be able to work from any non-allocated desk.

The retained space was redecorated and re-carpeted over a series of phases. The existing desks and some storage was re-used and new operator seating was installed.

The majority of the work was completed during normal working hours with minimal disruption to the ongoing business.

Once the space plan was signed off a proposal was prepared to give the office a complete makeover to include remodeling of partition walls, decorations, carpets, suspended ceiling tiles, lighting, data/power and new upvc external windows and doors.

This was an opportunity to review the offices compliance and ensure that all mandatory requirements were met and certificated.

All of the works were carried out in planned phased works in a live working environment with minimal disruption to the business operations
