The team who delivered the Barking Town Hall Refurbishment project for London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, has been presented with the Spaces Presidents Award for 2019.
Barnes Construction was awarded the D&B contract to convert the existing cellular office space in the existing 1930’s-built town hall into modern open plan, hot-desking offices to accommodate increased staff numbers. Significant temporary works were required to support the masonry walls whilst structural steel frames were inserted through the four floors of the building and M&E services were replaced throughout the Town Hall with efficiency at the forefront of the brief.
Social Value initiatives included an Employment & Skills Plan giving work to over 20 locals, financial support to LBBD good causes and winning a National CCS hoarding schemed decorated by local schoolchildren.
