Vanguard Contracts Ltd worked along side the appointed CDM Co- Ordinator of Grundon Waste Management.
Vanguard Contracts Ltd installed new blockwork walls, formed new openings into existing blockwork, formed new mat wells, applied floor screed and formed new underground drainage to facilitate the new w/c layouts. All works were carried out in accordance with the Approved Document H and South Oxford District Councils requirements.
A variety of partitioning systems were used throughout the project including fire rated areas, frameless glazed sections and sound proofed areas. The bespoke glazing system, 12mm toughened glass is Pilkington Approved.
The electrics were installed in accordance with the 17th Edition and NIC EIC Guidelines and all equipment selections were made with energy paramount.
The main feature of the project was 3 No. open atriums. Vanguard Contracts Ltd designed a bespoke staircase and balustrade in line with the quality and reputation Grundon Waste Management holds and to maximize the space and light of the area. The stair case incorporated stainless steel stringers, treads and support columns to compliment the stainless steel 4 bar balustrade. Glass risers and concrete carpeted treads were installed to complete the finishes. Vanguard Contracts Ltd were also commissioned to provide security to the site in the form of CCTV and Intruder Alarm. With the requirement for the Disability Discriminations Act (DDA) in buildings, Vanguard Contracts Ltd made every effort to complete the design of all elements to ensure compliance. Vanguard installed a fully compliant Platform Lift to service the first floor areas. The Project was completed in 10 weeks to the complete satisfaction of the Client.
