RMF were appointed as the sole raised flooring contractor by a large interior fit out client to assist them with transforming the Riverside House building into a modern office space. Built in the 1960s, Riverside House is a huge London landmark on the River Thames thanks to its distinctive 'sail' which was added during a renovation in 2002.
The site due to the scale of the works being completed was done on a phased basis beginning in June 2019 and achieving practical handover in December 2020. The project continued during the pandemic and whilst the building was partially occupied, RMF’s site teams worked closely with the contractor to ensure communication remained open and to ensure the safety of our teams getting used to new pandemic working procedures.
RMF’s scope of works were to complete the supply and installation of RMF medium duty raised flooring onto an all new steel pedestal under structure over levels 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11.
The project also required RMF to navigate complex bridging requirements on level 11 to enable the floor to bridge over a series of ducting and services.
The total project spanned 96,000 sq ft and created an additional 10,000 sqft of new office space. The project also achieved a BREEAM ‘Good’ rating and despite the challenging pandemic environment our on site teams made us extremely proud.
