The drainage works form part of M&J’s major refurbishment project; currently under-way at the Brunswick Centre.
Working as the main contractor, M&J have been involved early on in the design and specification for the 12,000+m2 of re-roofing, hard landscaping and the installation of over £1 million of new drainage systems. Removing failed syphonic drainage systems from live retail units and underground parking; simultaneously replacing it with a traditional cast iron gravity fed system.
As well as prominent retailers (Waitrose, French Connection, Carlucicco, Starbucks etc), the Brunswick Centre has over 300 residential units. This required precise planning and liaison with the site stakeholders to ensure minimum disruption to their plumbing services. Shift work and the ability to work within very tight time slots were critical the success. M&J kept all parties informed through direct contact, monthly Newsletters and attendance at Resident Association Meetings. Our Group message of “Your Safety is Our Priority” seemed to strike a resonance with all concerned, especially as the theory was so clearly demonstrated in the reality on site.
The complex nature of these works interfacing with such a busy and high risk environment presented a real challenge. The M&J Group have set ‘the bar’ and clearly demonstrated our ability to deal with the most diverse scenarios; raising our profile in not least the Retail and Residential contract arena.
