Marks and Spencer Pantheon store
The Marks and Spencer Pantheon store on London’s Oxford Street has been trading for over thirty years. Over that time it has been updated on a number of occasions to give shoppers the best experience in-store. In 2007, it is undergoing a multi-million pound refurbishment. The building has been stripped back to shell and core, prior to full refurbishment of three floors plus the basement area. Mace has managed the project, working with M&E engineering consultants ACDP and mechanical and electrical contractor Michael J Lonsdale.
The main challenge for the project team has been to ensure continued trading while the refurbishment work took place. To achieve this work has been carried out on one half of the store, while the other half remained open.
Waterloo were selected for the project for a number of reasons, one of the main reasons was Waterloo’s industry leading delivery performance – this was paramount on the project to ensure trading was not disrupted – Waterloo supplied a number of products, including large louvre-faced diffusers, linear slot diffusers, and angle-bladed grilles. This included over 70 large louvre-faced diffusers, and large return air grilles. Some of these were up to 4m in length, so were supplied in sections for ease of fitting.
