Boggi Milano, Jermyn Street, London

 

Following the successful completion of the Alfred Dunhill Store in Jermyn Street, we were approached by the Italian Designer Menswear company, Boggi Milano, to carry out the works in their first UK Retail Store in Jermyn Street, London.

The Client employed several Italian Contractors', who were also managed by Desertoak, in order to comply with UK Health & Safety and CDM Regulations.

Our Site Manager liaised with the Client's contact and the Italian Contractors', the majority of which did not speak English. Assistance was given to the Italian Contractors’ in producing Method Statements and Risk Assessments, which were then translated by the Contract Administrators. With this system and frequent meetings, all Contractors' could continue to work safely on site.

To the front of the shop, a self-contained gallery area was constructed, before you enter into the main shop unit. New MF ceilngs were fitted throughout with recessed lighting troughs. The main floor was levelled, in order to take the huge 4ft floor tiles, which were shipped over from Italy.

New lighting, power and data were fitted throughout the Ground Floor and Mezzanine level; new distribution boards were also fitted. The electrical and alarm systems need to be compatible to connect with and be remotely managed from Italy. In the Basement, numerous Offices remained, which required Periodic Inspection and Testing of the electrical installation.

The Mezzanine floor area required re-screeding and extending in part. The project was completed in 7-weeks.
