Council depot reconfigured and modernised
to deliver a better service

ITC helped Camden Council reconfigure their Holmes Road depot, utilising the space effectively resulting in operational improvements and cost savings.

Not only did we build an outstanding work environment for existing staff at Holmes Road; the new open plan office has meant other teams from another site moved in too and benefit from the new facilities. This created a vacant office building that the Council plan to sell and reinvest in services for the Borough.

Out with the old, in with the new!

The team stripped out the existing building and created a welcoming reception area, modern open plan office space, meeting rooms, improved storage facilities and new workshops.

The redevelopment of the site provided an opportunity to install new M&E, including 2 new plant rooms, heating system, ventilation and air conditioning system, solar panels and energy efficient lighting, including daylight & motion sensors. Upgrades were also made to the incoming electrical and water supply to the depot. These works have meant the building is now more efficient to run and maintain.

Keeping the facility operational to serve the local community

This was a logistically challenging project as the depot remained fully operational throughout, with the building partially occupied and several staff relocations during the build. The ITC team liaised with the different stakeholders to minimise disruption.
