Honourable Society of the Inner Temple, London, EC4

External Planned Preventative Maintenance

Having successfully completed many projects for the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple, Fahey Contracts were appointed in February 2012 to carry out planned external maintenance to numbers 1 to 6 Kings Bench Walk. The contract works programme was 22 weeks. These buildings form part of a grade 1 listed national monument and are a highly sensitive working environment for the legal profession. Due to the nature of the buildings comprehensive scaffold design was undertaken.

Subsequent works included brick and stone repairs, stone cleaning, re-pointing and overhaul to lead flashings. All windows were overhauled and repaired as necessary. All previously painted surfaces were then prepared and re-painted. The project was delivered before time and on budget.

Sherbourne Court, Cromwell Road, London SW7

Internal Common Parts Refurbishment

In January 2012 Fahey Contracts were appointed by one of their most valued clients, C A Daw & Son Ltd, to remodel this entrance to the common parts of this prestigious residential apartment block. The contract total was £74,000, with a works programme of 12 weeks.

Having wide experience of working in similar environments, one of the company’s major objectives was to minimise disruption and provide the highest level of service to residents.

Existing ceilings, joinery and wall finished were stripped out. A new suspended ceiling system was installed together with new lighting. New purpose made joinery was fitted and new tiled wall finish was installed. The project was delivered on time and on budget.

The Inner Temple Banqueting Hall

Internal Decoration and Ceiling Refurbishment

Appointed as principal contractor by the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple, Fahey Contracts was tasked to deliver this project to a very exacting timescale. The hall is in constant use for a variety of prestigious functions and there was a small and precise shutdown period of six weeks.

Access for the birdcage scaffolding was extremely limited and presented many challenges, Nevertheless, the scaffolding was erected in an efficient and timely fashion. Full protection was undertaken to those elements not involved in the works.

Existing sections of tiled ceiling were stripped and replaced. Thorough preparation and redecorations were then undertaken to all previously painted surfaces. This involved some sections of painstakingly picking out in different colours. The contract was completed on budget in five weeks.
