WHAT THE CLIENT SAID
“We were looking to work with a contractor that could take the headache out of this significant re-organisation and re-fit project. The business needed to remain fully operational throughout the programme of works, with disruption kept to a bare minimum. The Teepee team excelled themselves in all aspects of project management from design and installation to third party liaison and management and we are extremely pleased with the results.”
All works had to be co-ordinated to enable the company to remain fully operational whilst alterations took place. Working closely with Dimensions’ operational team, a time-critical plan was put together to enable relocation of stock before modifications taking place.
On commencement of work, Teepee worked with Dimensions appointed an electrical and mechanical contractor to ensure relevant services were installed above and below walkways.
Before carrying out any modifications, Teepee also obtained Building Regulation approval on behalf of Dimensions.
