Frazer Nash Showcase Extension 

Mychett, Guildford

  • Square One Construction were approached by Fibonacci Architects in January 2012, to extend Frazer Nash’s existing showcase building with a brief to be complete in the summer.

    In conjunction with Fibonacci, a cost plan tender was produced and works started in April 2012.

    Through the early stages of the project, Square One Construction continued working with Fibonacci on extending the construction issue information needed to progress the works.

    Given the sensitivity of the work carried out by Frazer Nash and the high level clients that regularly visited the remote 12 acre location, external representation of the building works was of paramount importance.

    Due to the extended first floor and works above the ground floor workshop, full scaffolding was erected to the building to gain external access without the need for internal access and potential disruption to the client.

  • The existing glazed atrium over the ground floor workshop was removed during an agreed phase of the project without disruption to the clients operations.

    Externally the building was redecorated along with replacement of various cornice details, replicating the existing building which dates back to the Second World War when the British Army occupied it.

    The 470k project completed in September 2012.

    In November 2012, Square One Construction were awarded the Small Project Excellence Award by their Health & Safety Consultants at their annual awards seminar.

  • We are glad to have Square One Construction assist us in the extension of our office premises. They have been extremely professional and good in their work including interactions with our architects, sub-contractors and staff. They managed to make up for the inclement weather and did a superb job within budget and on-time.
