Integrated property services and project delivery specialist Styles&Wood has completed a £2.1 million refurbishment at the global headquarters of the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) in Southwark, London.
Styles&Wood was commissioned by trade union ITF to complete the two-phase project over 33 weeks, which included the full strip-out and remodelling of 9,750 sq ft of office space at the five-storey, listed building.
Both phases were delivered by Styles&Wood’s Farringdon-based team and the first included the creation of new conference areas, meeting rooms and communal areas as well as the installation of a mezzanine floor. The second phase involved works packages to the buildings toilet, kitchenette and welfare facilities on all floors alongside the refurbishment of the 1,250 sq ft reception area, the installation of new counters and staircase as well as the creation of a new entrance.
Steve Wilton, business unit director at Styles&Wood, London, said:
“Our team has a solid track-record for delivering schemes on time and to budget in live working environments, and this project was no exception, ensuring minimal disruption to staff and the community around this busy area of central London.”
“There remains a healthy market for refurbishment and refresh work in the capital and ITF is the latest high profile occupier to call on our services as they invest in their property estates.”
The building remained operational throughout the project’s duration and, as part of its commitment to engage with the local community, Styles&Wood also carried out a refurbishment project for a neighbouring day care centre.
ITF represents over 4.5 million transport workers in 150 countries worldwide through 700 associated trade unions.
