Office Refurbishments

CFM have completed numerous maintenance and improvement projects to a number of non-residential properties including offices, shops and community centers to NIHE’s commercial property portfolio.

One project involved the planned refurbishment, improvement and fit out works to 4 NIHE offices & warehouse facility which included the following works:

NIHE Office: McCallister House: Omagh
These works required CFM being tasked with the design & installation of 840m2 new low-pitched roof structure on the existing concrete slab flat roof, trochal roof covering, internal drainage system within parapet walls engineered in line with new falls to carry all rooftop excess water. This element required installation of new timber roof trusses, fitting of a ‘breathable’ roofing membrane & pressure treated tiling battens to the rafters, laying concrete roof tiles to Architects spec, installing lead flashings & valley gutters & new rainwater goods

Internal alterations to office layouts included stripping out flooring, ceilings & old partition walls & forming new soundproof walls. Layouts were formed to provide a modern office space with privacy booths, ‘break-out’ areas & meeting rooms. Floors were finished with high traffic 300x300mm carpet tiles & suspended ceilings featured 600x600 soundproof tiles

These works further extended to include fire upgrade works including replacing existing doors with fire doors & associated ironmongery.

All works completed in line with strict program while building remained live and fully operational for the life time of the project.

These works allowed for design & fit out installation of new male & female toilets to each floor allowing for anti-slip floor tiles, wall tiles, fitting of counter top basins featuring deck mounted sensor taps, fitting of male & female toilet cubicles & separate disabled toilet cubicles. These works extended to include fitting of bespoke lockers, benches & changing rails throughout the office building.

These works were all carried out in live environments.

This required careful planning & comprehensive communication with NIHE Regional office staff.
