Case Study

A full fit-out at a three-storey modular building was delivered to Balfour Beatty in Manchester. Our team worked alongside the Balfour Beatty Modular team on the extension project in Worsley to build offices, meeting spaces, kitchenettes and toilet facilities on all floors. A total of 108 workstations, five meeting rooms, three kitchenette areas and the comms room were built during the six-week project.

A link corridor was installed to connect with the main building. We supplied and installed 108 staff workstations throughout the building, fully connected with data communications and power. In the break out/canteen areas on each floor, we installed high benches and other dining furniture. Our team also laid vinyl and carpets on all floors and installed male and female toilets as well as disabled facilities on the three levels.

Mark Barltrop, property manager for Balfour Beatty, thanked everyone involved who delivered the project on time. He said: “The building represents a significant enhancement to the existing facilities on site and will hopefully be well received by the staff.”

WorkBox project manager, Tom Beeson, said the project was phase one of two extremely important projects for our client Balfour Beatty at the Worsley site. The success of the Modular fit-out would have a big impact on the second phase project as the design and processes would be continuing for another 19 weeks.

Tom added: “We worked extremely well with the main contractor Balfour Beatty Modular with full integration with all trades and activities. The project was completed on time and on budget with a few minor snagging issues.”

Balfour Beatty was started in 1909 and now operates in the UK and the US, and also has developing businesses in Canada, the Middle East and South East Asia.
