CASE STUDY : COMMERCIAL ROAD LONDON
This contract was over the top of Tescos in Commercial Road
It was a new build and part renovation contract building 20 luxury
apartments . Our specification from the client was a fine
external sprayed finish that would remain clean in a busy commuter area with the min of maintenance over the years,
Extensive rendering and preparation was needed by us before we could carry out the final spraying works. Although a straight forward contract for us the difficulty was in getting access to the site as
everything had to be craned up from the road and the only working
times allowed was 10am to 4 PM....We decided to put 2 crews on it to get the contract done within the specified timescale.
