Greystar Europe Holdings Ltd, Kings Cross

Type: Refurbishment
Value: £1.8m
Duration: 42 weeks

Systematic refurbishment of corridors and upgrade of fire doors across the live and occupied private student residences block.

The 16 storey twin tower accommodation block has over 900 accommodation rooms and by the end of the 42 week run on site, 153 rooms were refurbished in addition to the corridor works. Rooms were allocated by the centre’s management as they became available to suit occupation, rather than the more traditional systematic refurbishment of works floor by floor. This collaborative approach provided Greystar with the flexibility they required to refurbish parts of the centre without the need for disruptive relocation of student.

We worked in a sympathetic and non-disruptive manner across several floors and areas at a time then became paramount to the success of the project.

Works to rooms included lighting, decorations, flooring and also some kitchenette and worktop replacements. The works within the corridors included doors, lighting ceilings decorations and flooring replacements.
