MITIE and Friends Life join forces for new £4.5m project

MITIE has won a £4.5m design & build contract with leading insurer Friends Life.

The FTSE 250 strategic outsourcing and energy services company will upgrade two 30,000 sq. ft. buildings in Maidenhead to comply with current building regulations as well as ensuring that they are an attractive letting proposition in the current market.

The fully refurbished building will feature new floors and ceilings, with impressive reception areas with stone desks and walls. The work comprises a shell and core strip out followed by a refit to CAT A.

The project includes the removal of walkways connecting three buildings and restoration of cladding to make them stand alone. The exterior will be updated with new entrance glazing and canopies, as well as remedial works to external cladding and landscaping.

MITIE will also install a new efficient main plant ensuring more cost effective heating and ventilation. The building is targeted to achieve a BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’.

Dale Harding, MD of MITIE interiors said “We are delighted to be working with Friends Life on this extensive refit.

MITIE is well placed to serve the existing market, updating office premises to ensure building owners and landlords reach full letting capacity.”
