Solar House Refurbishment
Client: UKAR - UK Asset Resolution Limited
Contract Value: £1.2m
Rance Booth Smith have recently completed the £1.2m office refurbishment of Solar House for UK Asset Resolution (UKAR) Limited. The refurbishment of the existing building follows on from a rationalisation programme of UKAR's facilites in the north east, and space planning exercises on a number of their properties.
The space planning has increased staff occupancy from 387 to 546, whilst also creating additional space for a larger canteen area and new training suite capable of accommodating up to 60 trainees at any one time.
The refurbishment works also included enclosing office spaces from the central atrium with glazed screens, upgrading the mechanical and electrical services, installing new security measures and computer systems and installing new suspended ceilings, carpets and redecorating throughout.
