Roald Dahl Museum Case Study

“We have worked with ABK on several occasions and the last project was the refurbishment of the upper floors of the South Wing of our Grade II listed building. The project was to convert existing office space into an open plan area for picnic lunches as well as extending a meeting room to become a classroom/workshop room and refurbishing a staff room and loo."

Roald Dahl Museum

The ABK team was contacted by the Roald Dahl Museum in Great Missenden in order to carry out Internal decorating refurbishments. A nice local project for a business celebrating one of the worlds most famous authors.

Project Requirements

Complete refurbishment of the upper floors of the South Wing of Grade 11 Listed Building. We then carried out additional refurbishment to other areas 6 months later.

Solution Implemented

We were provided with a detailed specification for the work, as this included various trades, we called upon our carpenter/joiner, flooring experts, plumbers, electricians and painters.

Challenges Overcome

As this was a large project, our skilled Contracts Manager managed the full refurbishment and scheduled in the trades as they were required so the project ran smoothly, finished ahead of schedule and within budget.

Results

A very happy client, unfortunately, the museum had a serious flood unrelated to the works we carried out, meaning some of the areas we refurbished had to be done again.

“We have worked with ABK on several occasions and the last project was the refurbishment of the upper floors of the South Wing of our Grade II listed building. The project was to convert existing office space into an open plan area for picnic lunches as well as extending a meeting room to become a classroom/workshop room and refurbishing a staff room and loo.

The work involved demolishing some internal stud walls, installing new walls and floor to ceiling cupboards, new lighting and flooring as well as removing old kitchens and replacing them with new. All of this work was completed while the Museum was open for business. Access to the site was limited for delivery and removal of goods and waste.

There were no issues at all about the delivery and removal of waste and all work was carried out with little or no disruption to the day to day running of the Museum.
The project was planned well and all trades worked well together. The workmen were all extremely professional and fulfilled the brief on time, within budget and to our complete satisfaction. We would have no hesitation in recommending ABK for building projects and, in fact, are about to embark on another project with them for phase two of the development”
