SPIE completes latest office refurbishment at BT Lancaster House, Liverpool

08 June 2017

SPIE UK has completed a contract to refurbish the 6th floor office space at BT Lancaster House in Liverpool.

Working as Principal Contractor, the refurbishment scheme, which included fabric, M&E and fire alarm works, has transformed the space to accommodate 76 workstations, meeting and training rooms as well as a staff welfare space.

This fast track, eight-week contract, carried out in a ‘live’ environment and involving artisan trade personnel, extends a long-term relationship with BT and adds to an already impressive portfolio of works with the customer, including a previous refurbishment scheme back in 2015.

Operationally, these works had to overcome significant challenges due to its prime city centre location.

This meant that co-ordination of site access and egress had to be carefully planned and managed due to the sensitivity of the site in terms of security and noise, with regular meetings held with FM staff and relevant management personnel to ensure that works didn’t impact on day-to-day operations.

To carry out essential tasks including mains power cabling from the basement to a new distribution system on the 6th floor, shut downs of essential services as well as road closures, SPIE’s teams needed to work out of hours.

Innovative thinking, excellent communication and up-to-the-minute reporting have ensured the smooth and timely running of this refurbishment.

Gary Wingrove, Property and Construction Director, BT Property and Facilities Services, said: “SPIE has delivered the challenging contract to a high standard, helping BT Facilities Services meet all the contract objectives.”

Steve Gibbs, Facilities Services Managing Director at SPIE UK, says: “We’re delighted to have been chosen by BT for another prestigious contract at BT Lancaster House, and recognise the importance of this work in improving and developing the 6th floor office space.

"We’re proud of the quality of these works as well as our ability to meet the tight timescales involved. We look forward to working together on future refurbishment schemes in this building and elsewhere.”
