Project Overview

CAT B Fit-Out

Mechanical modifications to suit the bespoke CAT B fit-out requirements of a blue-chip client, National Grid.

High specification office fit-out on Ground Floor within National Grid, Warwick. The existing office layout was changed to incorporate new Office Space, Meeting Rooms, Restaurant, Kitchen and Conference Suite Rooms. A new dedicated catering Kitchen was fitted complete with Restaurant Area. A new Conference Suite was formed, consisting of various rooms, each with different varying occupancy levels, which required newly installed Mechanical Services.

Following successful completion of this scheme, Torsion Engineering was awarded a new contract to refurbish the exiting shower block, including new sanitary ware, air-source heat pump, ventilation, domestic and drainage services.
