This project was undertaken under a collaborative Construction Management Contract to assist the London Borough of Hackney with relocating the car compound facility from the existing premises in to a new facility in the land at Andrews Road which was previously occupied by the chair manufacturing facility known as ‘Firm Back Works’.

The works included asbestos removal and demolition of the existing building and bricking up the existing warehouse where necessary to suit the new layout. New ramps, railings, surface water drainage together with new surfacing were afforded to the car parking areas with security additions and sensitive extensive external lighting, CCTV equipment and powered gates. Two modular office facilities were positioned and their fit outs included enhanced security at the public interface reception areas and back of house office administration areas with full IT connections with the Borough to cater for the nancial transactions pertaining to vehicle recovery and penalties.
