The Bersey Warehouse
The Bersey Warehouse is located on Old Street and the corner of Coronet Street. Aviva acquired the building with the vision of retaining much of the original brick facing seen inside the building. The project aimed to keep the workspaces bright and airy, with the old building keeping much of its character. The project intended to bring a modern feel to the building, with large brass doors and architrave, all of the lift surrounds were of grained brass, which also completed the large green finished windows. Alpine’s sister company CDC Engineering manufactured and fitted all of the brass and copper work within this building.
Alpine expertly manufactured and fitted all of the FCU covers for the building. This project came with some unique challenges, most notably several different size units were used. Many of the offices had pipework close to adjacent walls, and fitting positions varied on each FCU cover.
Through our detailed pre-manufacture survey that we routinely conduct, we were able to work with the client to resolve these clash points and manufacture a high-quality product to fit the required spaces. We ensured the overall dimensions and central grill position of the covers would not compromise the functionality of the FCU while maintaining the required airflow within each unit.
Collins Construction Ltd was the main contractor, and with their expertise and help, I have to say this project was a joy to work on.
