Throughout McDonald’s €66million investment in their European restaurants, Pacific Building worked closely on the roll-out of the new design concepts throughout the UK, with a value to date of £7.4million and plans in place for a further £10.5million spend over the next few years.
Following the success of these projects, Pacific Building were delighted to tender for and win the contract for the refurbishment of McDonald’s European Headquarters to a Grade-A office standard.
Situated on Edgware Road, at the heart of London and within the city’s congestion zone, the two-storey office block posed a number of challenges, not just in terms of access. As a highly serviced building, the requirements for installation of technology would also prove demanding throughout the strip-out, reform and refurbishment of the premises.
Pacific Building carefully planned the logistics of the project to ensure that there were no issues with deliveries or removal of material from the site, situated on one of London’s busiest streets and a major thoroughfare for bus routes.
Access and deliveries were scheduled to take place during off-peak hours to avoid rush-hour traffic. As all materials used were of the highest quality, careful moving and handling was required. Experienced in working with delicate, expensive materials, the Pacific Building team ensured that all works and finishing touches were completed to the highest standards.
To incorporate the technological requirements of the client, Pacific Building developed routes prior to commencing works to ensure all services reached their required location.
The project was then carefully planned around the complexities of these requirement and delivered according to exact specifications.
Pacific Building implemented considerate construction methods throughout the project, ensuring that all works were delivered to the premium quality expected of an internationally revered brand. The client was delighted with the finished results, and this project marks a further success in Pacific Building’s continuing relationship with McDonald’s.
