Heathfield Library and Union Offices
Frankham Consultancy Group were appointed by East Sussex County Council (ESCC) at Heathfield Library to carry out a complete refurbish of the library and staff areas, new fire alarm system, fire compartmentation works, new lighting throughout and new heating system.
Any asbestos detected as a result of the R&D survey was removed and an anthrax survey was carried out to the lathe plaster.
Due to the property being used as a library, the client could only shut the library for a two week period, therefore the works had to be programmed in a fully occupied property. Any major fire safety works to the library reception area was completed within this closed period; the remaining works were completed during the operating hours.
The client requested additional fire safety works to the office above, which had to be completed prior to the tenant moving in. Our communication, recommendations, advice and design were quickly produced to the contractor who managed to complete the works within the tight timescale provided in order for the tenant to move in.
Monthly meetings are held with ESCC for the whole maintenance programme, and we were continuously praised in relation to outstanding works and efforts to excel the works at Heathfield Library to meet the client’s timescales and work around the property being occupied.
