Sustainable Strip Out






Very Good

Fjord Building

Parkeray awarded FDS the subcontract to strip out 6 floors of office space in Kings Cross. The refurbishment of the site aimed to achieve BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating. Before works commenced, FDS carried out a pre-refurbishment survey to set goals and recommendations for material reuse and recyclability to avoid sending waste material to the landfill. FDS, in partnership with Parkeray, found reuse for 72% of the material scheduled to go offsite. The material was either reused on-site, saving Parkeray time and the client money, or off-site. 98% of the material not reused was diverted from the landfill and recycled. The strip out was sequenced to give the fit-out priority access to floors as they were stripped, allowing the overall project to excel.
