Strip Out & Enabling Works
In the capacity of Principal Contractor, KpH Deconstruction undertook this 12 week Strip Out and Enabling project at Regent Quarter working on behalf of Endurance land and alongside Alinea Consulting and Gardiner and Theobald.
Regent Quarter is located on the western edge of the London Borough of Islington. The scope of our works involved 3 building within the estate, namely; Jahn Court, Times House and Laundry Building. The building varied in size however all had single storey basements. Our works consisted of the complete strip out back to shell and core of all 3 buildings which covered a combined area of approximately 15,350 sqm plus additional roof top plant.
The project itself required a considerate amount of pre-planning not only to satisfy the nearby residential neighbours that sufficient measurers had been put in place to protect their right to quiet time but also to ensure that the logistical planning surrounding the waste removal was achievable and could meet what was a very tight programme.
The works were undertaken in each building alongside each other which required three separate teams to be deployed and careful co-ordination surrounding noise and logistics. During the start of the project KpH were also able to support the NHS and their covid test centre which had been moved externally into the square between Times House and The Laundry Building by supplying temporary power from our site for a period of time.
