Removal of the existing flooring and laying a new vulkem waterproof system, fitting of new metal balustrades and handrails, external decorations, the upgrade to the landlords supply and new task lighting, ld2 works and the removal of the timber cladding to the drying rooms which were replaced with fire rated cedral cladding, all other timber cladding replaced using the sto render system, brick work to the ground floor and concrete repair works, new drainage works done to the 1st/2nd floors to help with the pounding water issues.
