Bulkhead, ceiling and partition at Eastgate mall.
Ceilings and Partitions were constructed at Eastgate shopping mall to the highest standards. The challenges were both co-ordinating existing tenants and also budgetary constraints . Access to shops and offices had to be maintained at all times.
Passages had to be maintained . So temporary partitions and ceilings were erected throughout the center. Thus enabling both shoppers and staff free ans easy movement. Maintaining crucial flows in the Mall.
Repairing and maintaining ceilings and partitions was ongoing so as not to cause undue stress to staff and management. A large proportion of the work had to be carried out after hours which entailed extra challenges.
It was of utmost importance to keep the areas clean & tidy in order to maintain the ambience of the shopping center. It is important to make the shopper feel at ease in their surroundings.
the main contractor Stefanutti Stocks co-ordinated the whole project. It was undertaken to very tight program constraints as the client Liberty life could not accept unnecessary delays. As this would impact on tenant satisfaction. The end delivery was monitored throughout the duration of the contract.
Another challenging feature was the redirection of existing services while maitaining the operation of the mall. Ceilings had to be removed and replaced to enable the redirection of these services.
Above all the safety of Mall staff, shoppers and construction personnel had to be of the utmost importance . This was achieved by constant supervision and reporting of activities. Making sure all areas were covered continually throughout the duration.
At the completion of the project it was notable that all relationships were still maitained and respected. Paving the way for successful future contracts.
