UAL Elthorne Road

Brief Description Of Works

This former Bomb Factory and latterly office building has been transformed into a versatile teaching space and art studios for the University of the Arts. Taking the building back to a shell, new electrical and heating systems were installed, the internal space remodeled, and existing walls were demolished with new being erected. New kitchens and bathrooms were fitted and the whole space benefited from replastered walls, full redecoration and new floor coverings.

Client View

“T Gunning Ltd were appointed by UAL to undertake internal alterations and adaptations to a new academic arts facility located in Archway, North London. The works required a ‘can do’ attitude, working closely with our internal Projects Team. From appointment to completion, T Gunning Ltd provided a comprehensive Service going above and beyond expectation resulting in an excellent overall delivery.”

Michael Banks, UAL Estates Surveyor

Key Points

With a limited Client specification we managed the process from on site design through to final completion.

With very limited outside space that was shared with other businesses, there was no room for skips. We managed the process with a wait and load system and utilised out of hours deliveries.

A very tight rein on the processing of waste materials meant that we were able to achieve a 100% reclaimed, recycled or resold rate.

Due to the very tight programme, we worked around the clock and at weekends to ensure completion on time.

Short term programming highlighted key areas of concern at the pre-contract planning stage, and ensuring any revisions were programmed in.
