Broadgate Quarter, 1 Snowden Street

Strip Out and Enabling

Client: Blackstone Property Management
Project: Broadgate Quarter, 1 Snowden Street

Brief Description:

Acting in the capacity of Principal Contractor, KpH were engaged by Beadmans on behalf of our Client, Blackstone Property Management, to undertake the full Strip Out back to core of Retail, Commercial and Storage Units on the Ground Floor within the Broadgate Quarter Building. KpH successfully completed the project over a period of 12 weeks.

Broadgate Quarter is a twelve storey office building, containing approximately 425,280 square feet of net office and retail space, plus associated reception, circulation and service spaces.

By liaising with the Building Manager, KpH carefully coordinated deliveries and waste removals through the shared Loading Bay, and around the limited space in the surrounding area, without disrupting the activities of the existing tenants. A clear access and egress route was maintained at all times.

Key elements of the project required a more considered approach to ensure that, wherever possible, KpH mitigated the noise nuisance to other building users. Noisy works were, in some cases, undertaken out of hours and allowed the project to be completed on programme with minimal cost implications.
