Floyer House, Queen Mary University

Client: Queen Mary University of London / Kier
Project: Refurbishment of communal areas
Location: Floyer House, London

The client approached Logic CP to provide upgrade works to the kitchens, bathrooms and other communal areas of a student accommodation block in central London.  These essential works were required to be carried out over the University summer holiday period which was rapidly approaching.

The works comprised of the refurbishment and upgrade of communal kitchens with new units, flooring, decorations and electrical works.  A number of bathrooms were converted to provide an additional provision of showers with new flooring, decorations and services and the communal corridors and laundries were upgraded for safety specific items highlighted in the client’s condition report.  Appropriate asbestos refurbishment and demolition surveys were commissioned and carried out in the areas affected by the works.

Logic CP worked to develop the scope of works from the client’s condition report and prioritised with the client the works that had to be completed within the holiday period and those that could be carried out later.

With the early involvement we were able to influence the specification to ensure that it met the clients’ performance requirements and also achieve the procurement periods required to meet the key programme dates.

There were certain parts of the building that the client required access to sooner than others, the works were programmed to enable early client access to these areas.

During the project the site manager liaised with the client facilities manager to co-ordinate the works with the routine cleaning and summer break maintenance works that were carried out each year by the University.  This collaborative approach enabled both our works and the client’s works to be completed within the required timescales and the students were able to occupy their accommodation in time for the new term.
