Strip Out of a 4 Storey City Centre Building
The works comprised the strip out of the existing 4 storey office building at 68 Westgate Street, Gloucester, GL1 2NZ and the creation of 32 student flats with associated communal and management facilities.
The site is bounded on both sides and to the rear by busy commercial offices and restaurants. In order to minimise the impact of our activities, all materials, deliveries and debris removal was via the front door leading onto Westgate Street, leaving the rear access lane clear. All movements had to be undertaken before 10.00am to avoid restricting Westgate Street.
We erected fully painted hoarding to the front of the site and installed suitable signage to ensure public awareness and avoid any impact on our neighbours businesses.
