Refurbishment of former warehouse to provide carbon-neutral
office and storage space

The project:


Following significant business growth, Lochlie Construction Group required new, larger offices, having worked out of serviced offices for 8 years. They bought an empty industrial unit in Hillington and completed a comprehensive refurbishment with sustainability and collaboration at the heart of the design.

What we did:

The scope of works included a full strip out, with removal of roof and glazing. All internal steel beams were retained and refurbished with new roof cladding and rooflights installed by a specialist sub-contractor. EWI and a new entranceway feature completed the exterior and were delivered by our in-house teams. Internally the building was divided to create office space with a warehouse storage facility to the rear. Our in-house joinery team completed all interior sheeting and joinery, while our M&E team completed a full new installation including underfloor heating, ventilation and full electrical fit-out. The M&E team also installed and commissioned our air source heat pump system. Additional renewable technology included a 40Kw solar PV system, designed and installed by others (now offered in-house by our own team for 2023).

All painting and decoration was delivered by our in-house team, while specialist floor finishings were delivered by a specialist sub-contractor.
