CGA were successful in being awarded this very prestigious project at an undisclosed royal household palace. The project consisted of creating a new swing space in an area in the heart of the palace that was dilapidated and unused for as number of years.  The project scope was to lift the existing flooring to the new proposed office layout from the existing jack arch and cast iron beams with the introduction of new 12 meter long steels tied into the existing fabric of the building between the existing cast iron beam and jack arches. This was to ease the load of the new design off of the existing structure.

This was then traditionally timber joisted with plywood and t hen a new raised access flooring.

The main challenge of the project were:

  • Logistics into the palace
  • Temporary works design during the structural alterations
  • Isolation and removal of existing services
  • Working above state rooms within the palace
  • Removal of asbestos from the floor void throughout the 1000 square meters of the project
  • Deliveries into the palace

The office CAT B Fit out consisted of new high end finishes that included:

  • New office spaces to accommodate 300 head count
  • New toilet blocks and showers
  • New kitchen areas
  • Data and infostructure services
  • DOA comp liant lift access around three levels
  • Roof lights installed to the existing lead roof structure
