R1 Construction were appointed by Warwickshire County Council to refurbish existing toilets and showers at Hawkes Point in Warwick.
Hawkes Point was a previous warehouse facility that the council had purchased to develop into a new ‘Hub’ building for the council. The building contains many administration and office spaces, along with a full vehicle workshop, archive storage and many other key facilities that were previously sited at various locations throughout the area.
Wilmott Dixon interiors were the main contractor for the majority of the works, however after there contract ended the council decided that they wanted to refurbish the existing toilet facilities and following a competitive tender process, R1 Construction were successfully appointed to undertake the works.
The works comprised of removing all floor and wall tiles, all sanitary ware, cubicle systems and showers and replacing with new throughout.
The works began in March 2020, with a planned 5 week programme, however due to Covid-19, works halted for several weeks during the initial lockdown. Toward the end of April, the Army identified the premises to be used as a temporary base, and therefore works became critical and key project / worker status was granted. Implicating the correct safe working and distancing measure, R1 Construction were then able to re-start works on site, completing shortly after.
