Gary Punter’s Top 10 Projects from 2020

We are excited to bring you Lead Site Manager Gary Punter’s “Christmas Crackers”, featuring 10 of his favourite refurbishment, fit-out and extension projects from 2020 . Watch this space as we unwrap Gary’s festive favourites in the coming weeks.

10. London Fire Commissioner 

“Just a stones throw from our offices, it was great to be involved on this important project for the London Fire Commissioner” Lead Site Manger Gary Punter

This project consisted of the modification, alteration and refurbishment of an existing warehouse building, and the construction of a two-storey structural steel to create an Integrated Equipment and Logistics Centre for the London Fire Commissioner.

9. St. Helier Hospital

“It was great to be involved on a project that would support the fight against Covid-19” Lead Site Manger Gary Punter

Completed during the first nationwide lockdown, the St. Helier Hospital C2 Ward  was one of the most important projects we worked on in 2020. Thanks to the hard work of our team the ward was completed 5 weeks ahead of schedule, allowing the NHS to treat more patients suffering from Covid-19.

8. Wandsworth College, London

“There was some stunning design work on display at Wandsworth College , the staircase looked like it was straight out of a Harry Potter film” Lead Site Manger Gary Punter

At Wandsworth College we upgraded the existing classrooms, to provide modern and exciting new workspaces for students and teachers. Works also included the separation of part of the Wandsworth Campus, which would become a new primary school.

7. Morley College, London

“I love all the brick paving elements and the use of brick slips within the lobby area. Combined with the LED lighting the brick paviours look spectacular at night” Lead Site Manger Gary Punter

Established in 1889, Morley College is one of the UK’s oldest and largest specialist providers of adult education. Our work at Morley College involved the reconfiguration of the existing reception, construction of a new entrance building and associated external works.

6. Polka Theatre, Wimbledon

“Our appointment at Polka Theatre brought back happy memories of taking my daughter to see children’s television presenter David Benson over 20 years ago. Our redevelopment work signals a bright future for Polka Theatre and hopefully my daughter can create similar memories with her children in years to come.” Lead Site Manger Gary Punter

Our remodelling and extension at Polka Theatre includes the demolition of the existing adventure theatre, construction of a new adventure theatre and studio and refurbishment of parts of the existing building.

5. Harrow Library

“As soon as you set foot in Harrow Library it’s hard not to be impressed by the spectacular lighting and spacious communal areas.” Lead Site Manger Gary Punter

Completed earlier this year, our work for Harrow Council involved the full fit-out of  Harrow Library and Pavilion.

4. Breams Buildings

“Removing the existing roof, in preparation for building two new floors has involved some very unique and interesting scaffolding designs, that are very eye catching from outside.” Lead Site Manger Gary Punter

Our ongoing work at Breams Buildings involves a two storey vertical extension and CAT A refurbishment.

3. Godstone Farm

“I have so many great memories of family days out at Godstone Farm. The kids of the future will be so lucky to have a nursery with a farm outside and so much space to enjoy”
Lead Site Manger Gary Punter

At Godstone Farm our work involves alterations to existing buildings, creating a new children’s nursery, welcome centre, construction of new play barn and coffee shop.

2. 5 Fleet Place

“5 Fleet Place delivers a real WOW Factor as soon as you walk into the reception. The standard of finish from the waiting areas to the lift lobbies is exceptional.”
Lead Site Manger Gary Punter

At 5 Fleet Place works involved the complete strip out and refurbishment of the office floor areas. The reception, lift interior and wash room facilities all underwent extensive refurbishment. In the basement we upgraded the showers and changing rooms and replaced the existing bike storage to increase capacity.

1. Brunswick Gate, Southampton
