Overview

Our works during the refurbishment of a City of London commercial property included the construction of a two storey new build frame to the roof, a new ground floor to fifth floor core structure, and various other structural modifications in the form of introducing steelwork and connection details. Installation was completed by the use of a self erecting tower crane during weekend road closure hours.

Apex were responsible for all connections to the existing structure, with this project’s success relying on the coordination between our site surveyors, draughtsmen and installation teams. Many of the connections and steel members remain exposed after fit-out as an architectural feature. This had an impact on the aesthetics of the connections, as well as their structural performance. Our factory applied paint application also achieved an extremely high standard.
