Client Overview

From aviation to land and data, CBRE deliver a huge variety of services for businesses, investors and developers across a range of industry sectors. They provide advisory and transaction services for real estate and manage buildings across twenty countries. Our partnership came about as a result of the Air Conditioning site maintenance team referring Forth® to an external Projects team who were progressing the job.

The Challenge

Our challenge was to transform a previously underused workshop into a bright, airy and inspiring workspace. Consequently, Forth® would need to design and install a system combining air conditioning, ventilation electrical and plumbing works, that would convert the underutilised workshop into a brand new office space and post room.

With every aspect of the project handled by Forth®, this turnkey solution offered the client complete peace of mind, resulting in a more comfortable and practical building which met their needs and was fully compliant with current regulations. Specification changes were required throughout the work, including electrical points, air conditioning, ventilation and lighting design, however the programme was adhered to bringing the project came in on time and within budget to the delight of the client.
