20 Old Bailey

Enabling Works

Client: Blackstone Group
Project: 20 Old Bailey – Strip Out and Enabling
Project Value: £1.3M Phase 1 and 2 Works
Brief Description

Working as Principal Contractor KpH are currently undertaking this Strip Out and Enabling package across 11 floors together with the removal of roof top plant. First Phase works were undertaken within a live, occupied building directly opposite the prestigious London landmark The Old Bailey.

Scope of Works

Phase 1 Works

Across a duration of 14 weeks the works consisted of the complete strip out of Sub Basement to 5th Floor whilst 1st, 6th and 7th were in use by the existing tenants. With floor areas spanning between 1579m2 and 2300m2 the works involved removal of all floor coverings incl raised access floor, stud partitions, ceiling and ceiling services, wall linings and M & E removal back to core risers. The steel framed, pre-constructed toilet pods were an unexpected discoverable item in this first phase and were incorporated into what was already a tight 1st phase programme.

Phase 2 Works

Undertaken across a programme of 12 weeks the works involved the isolation of the entire building (now vacated) whilst ensuring that all services remain live to feed the Public House in the north corner of the site. Additionally the complete strip out of the remaining 3 floors and complete M & E Strip Out including AHU’s, Plant and Risers. Edge protection was erected to the roof areas to allow safe removal.

The project participated in the Considerate Constructors Scheme and following an on-site audit achieved “Performance Beyond Compliance” in recognition of our innovation towards Health and Safety and the welfare of our workforce and surrounding tenants.
