Construction of Fire-Proof Canteen Area with HVAC System and Other Facilities
After a few initial visits with our architect to finalise the drawings and designs we had produced, we then went onto putting a full schedule of works together for the client.
To create the required canteen area we had to first fire proof the mezzanine floor by coating the existing steel with intumescent paint and double plaster boarding the complete underneath floor are to create the fire break and to comply with up-to-date fire regulations.
Once that was complete we starting forming the walls out of plasterboard and metal stud partitioning leaving spaces for the new aluminium fire rated windows and door frames to accommodate the factory finished FD3 doors. We then fitted a suspended ceiling, a hot and cold air conditioning system, along with a sink for staff washing facilities, and a new none-slip vinyl floor.
Kevin Green from Kuehne + Nagel told us
With the company employing more staff, we knew we needed a bigger canteen area, so we looked into having one built and after speaking with one or two building and refurbishment contractors we came across Apple Solutions.
After a few initial meeting with John and he’s team we realised that John would be able to give us a complete service from having the drawing designed to dealing with the local authorities building inspector, this would leave me free to concentrate on other issues.
Once John’s team started work everything went smoothly, with a safe and professional manor and, most importantly, without any hassle or major disruption. Most of all he dealt with everything from design to completion.
Now our canteen is finished it not only looks great but also gives us exactly the space we needed for the new employee’s. We couldn’t have been happier with what John and his team have done for us, and we will definitely be asking him to look at future projects for us.
