Refurbishment and utilisation of one quarter of the Crowndale Centre

The works for the Crowndale Centre involved the refurbishment of approx. one quarter of the centre to restructure and better utilise this important public space. The Mayor’s chambers are frequently used to hold town hall meetings, and the building also hosts an immigration registration point. Safety and facilitating the purpose fit services were key in the programme for this project. Works included M&E and PH services renewal, the installation of new toilets, alarm systems, the alteration of sprinklers, new lighting, air conditioning and new heating systems. The team installed new suspended and MF ceilings throughout. We also worked on structural improvements along with carpentry works, decoration and improved ventilation across the areas.

The ITC team installed a new office working space for the client, as well as separating the existing open plan office area, creating individual meeting rooms. In addition, we refurbished existing offices, toilets, meeting rooms and installed new welfare areas.

This was a challenging design and build project, starting with an unusual mixture of historic construction and service installation. The building’s modernisations were completed on time with the final accounts agreed. The client and ITC’s project team are both pleased with the project outcome.
