RBS were retained to undertake the cosmetic refurbishment of this building in the heart of London to maximise the new leasing opportunity. Spread over four floors, the old flooring was taken up, the surface was prepared to ensure an even tread and new, hard-wearing carpet tile was laid. The old carpeting, and all rubbish left by the previous tenants was removed and disposed of. Full redecoration throughout was carried out from the basement to the third floor, including walls, window frames, skirting, stairwells toilet and kitchen areas. The existing carpet in the stairwells was steam cleaned.
Internal partitioning was removed to provide a more open-plan aspect to the basement accommodation. Repairs to the toilets and kitchen were made. Some lighting was changed to Cat 2 specification, and all lighting, including the emergency units, was inspected and certificated. Investigating an existing leak to the first floor, the patio area on the second floor was resealed. A full builders’ clean was carried out upon completion of the refurbishment, giving a ‘ready to move straight in’ feeling to prospective tenants.
