“Quantum recently carried out a complex re-roofing and upgrading project of a 60,000 sq.ft. warehouse at Parkhouse Interchange, Newcastle-Under-Lyme for London based Newcombe Estates. This involved the complete replacement of the 1980’s asbestos roof and re-fitting of the offices. The three month project was carried out during one of the worst winters in recent history but was completed successfully.”

UTC Aerospace required wholesale replacement of the heating, cooling and fresh air installations, along with general refurbishment works, at their Hemel Hempstead offices.


The refurbishment of several office areas, within the occupied building, was delivered through a phased construction programme to accommodate continued use of live working areas wherever achievable.


Overall works are circa 2,735m2 across two floors of the building and involved the isolation and removal of existing mechanical ductwork within ceiling areas and plant room.


A new mechanical scheme was then installed along with flooring repairs, new ceilings and redecoration works throughout.


In additional to the need to maintain a high standard of Health & Safety control, particularly in areas of client interface, the sensitive nature of client activities required an equally high level of attention to maintain security throughout the building at all times.
