Rork Projects were awarded the contract for the Stage 2 works to upgrade 33 Park Road, after successfully completing Stage 1 works in early 2020.
The Stage 2 works included the main entrance lobby refurbishment; male, female and PWD amenities upgrades on multiple levels; and external balconies rewaterproofed and new membrane applied. New shade sail structures were also installed on the external balconies to create shade for tenants.
Certain works were fast tracked to accommodate the requirements of a building tenant who occupied multiple levels and operated 24/7. In order for them to remain fully operational during the works, the amenities within their tenancy were upgraded to ensure minimal disruption to their operations and were carried out prior to Christmas 2020.
The amenities upgrade works included new FFE, toilet partitions, wash basins and tiling. The main lobby upgrade works were completed out of hours to ensure other tenants could access their offices when normal working hours resumed. New lighting, loose furniture and feature walls were installed throughout to give a welcoming look.
Rork Projects also spent a considerable amount of time upgrading the external balconies of the building, installed new posts and shade sail structures. A new membrane was also applied whilst the balconies were finished off with a stencil tile finish to really bring the balconies back to life. Loose furniture seating and planter boxes were also installed creating a place for tenants to enjoy during lunch or for a breath of fresh air.
