Facelift for a run-down facility.
In compliance with monument preservation requirements, BBGS Sp z o.o executed a design & build project in Poznań, Poland. The derelict building, a former vehicle maintenance facility used by the Polish army, clearly showed its age and was handed over in miserable condition.
For a contract value of narrowly EUR 1.5m, BBGS Sp z o.o assumed a versatile and challenging renovation project including the following tasks:
- demolition of all internal electrical and mechanical installations
- new electrical and telecommunication installation
- installation of a new fire alarm system
- new HVAC and plumbing installation
- industrial epoxy floor in maintenance hall, electrical & IT rooms
- renovation of windows and façades
- replacement of doors and sectional doors
- replacement of the old suspended ceiling for a modern fire ceiling
- mobile crane delivery and assembly
- finishing works: new bathrooms, plastering & painting works, tiles ceilings, PVC floors
After a 10 months construction period, the former factory is now shining in new splendour, still matching the previous design in reference to both US and Polish codes.
Both inside and outside, the former vehicle maintenance facility was badly run-down so that a demolition and a new construction might have been the cheaper option.
However, monument preservation orders required to maintain the building structure.
A complete renovation of most parts was strongly required.
All tasks were perfectly executed by BBGS Sp z o.o., taking all monument preservation orders into account. A historical building is now once again in mint condition.
The leaking roof had caused some damages on the suspended ceiling.
The renovated facility now provides a fresh atmosphere to work due to the light colors and the easy-to-clean flooring. The new ventilation system produces fresh air.
The former hallway had more the charm of a prison.
The new hallway welcomes every visitor. Light-coloured walls appear more inviting and a guiding system makes orientation easier.
The former restrooms were no place to rest, but rather a place for “emergencies“.
During the renovation of the toilets, modern tiling was used. The more sustainable eco toilets now use a smaller amount of water per flush than the old ones.
