Argent

Tapestry Apartments

The Project

Argent, a UK property developer, has delivered some of the best mixed-use developments in the UK: major commercial, residential, education, cultural and community developments in the country’s largest cities.

8build were appointed to undertake the full strip out and reinstatement of 16 apartments within the Tapestry Building following a leak in 2017. The works consist of reinstating the 16 apartments by stripping out and drying out the apartments and refitting to a high specification finish.

Overcoming Challenges

The rest of the tapestry building is fully occupied with residents; logistics and maintenance of noisy works are key to maintaining happy neighbours.

Logistics – due to the joint scaffolding agreement from ‘king’s cross central partnership Ltd’ and ‘Argent’. We have assessed and proposed an alternative method for access / removals via the top car park and use of a goods lift.

Removal of rubbish due to limited access to the building and no skips allowed on the premises. We have proposed to utilise weight and load trucks on a 2-hour load basis.
