The brief for the project was to improve the quality and flexibility of the current conference and meeting room facilities at Learn Direct Headquarters building in Sheffield. The facility was to include breakout areas and ensure that the spaces provided would be sustainable by being easily adaptable to meet UFI’s constantly evolving environment.
During the construction phase of the project, UFI still occupied both wings and all three floors of Dearing House. In order to ensure that UFI enjoyed seamless continuity to their normal operating services, the co-ordination of a move management strategy resulted in UFI benefiting from a disruption free build.
The result was not only a project successfully delivered within 2 months, from inception to practical completion, but also within UFI’s budget. Arcus were subsequently appointed to provide a similar service in connection with the refurbishment works required at mezzanine floor level and to two further break-out areas.
What seemed like an impossibly tight deadline was achieved on time and within budget despite some difficult changes to the scope of works. Arcus and their nominated contractor were both extremely professional throughout. Work was mainly carried out during normal working hours and despite this, there was no disruption to staff at our Head Quarters. Our decision to award further work to Arcus is a further demonstration of our satisfaction with their work on this project.
