The Cooperage Gainsford Street

Value: £1.3 Million | Duration: 34 weeks

An Old Warehouse Style Build

The Cooperage Gainsford Street is an old warehouse style build being modernized under a CAT A fit out situated on the south side of the Tower Bridge. The building itself is self-constrained and arranged over 3 stories, providing a mixture of ground floor self-contained office units and main reception area, two floor of open plan office space centralized around a glass atrium overlooked by two floors of residential apartments.

MES will successfully carry out a full CAT A fit out to the electrical services of approximately 44,265 square feet over a 34 week programme.

Our scope of works are to install all new electrical LV sub mains distribution, small power and lighting services and a new Fire Alarm System to L2 specification with disabled refuge points through Floors Ground – 2nd Floor. All of the electrical services will be installed either at high level, exposed on cable tray or within two dedicated electrical services risers, located in the centre of the building emanating from a ground floor LV plan room.
