After a successful tender process, Tate & Morgan were awarded a commercial building contract by the Beecroft Art Gallery in Southend to make several renovations to different areas of the gallery.

The existing Beecroft gallery building

The Beecroft is a 4 Storey concrete framed building with a basement and was built in the late 1960’s. Originally it was constructed as the local authority’s central library, it was then converted to an art gallery and a start-up business space.

Tate and Morgan offer an extensive range of commercial building services and passive fire protection services

The Gallery was looking to improve some of its public spaces but also needed electrical, cabling and air conditioning works as well as renovation work to the reception, offices and installation of fire doors.  One of Tate and Morgan’s specialities is passive fire protection.

Tate and Morgan won the tender process for the building renovation

The tender was for reception and office alterations also creating a new reception desk on the ground floor and internal alterations to the reception area. The work comprised the following

  • Refurbishment of existing staff room to an office/work room.
  • Temporary creation of first floor staff room.
  • Work to create the new information desk
  • Form new walls and door in front of windows
  • Electrical Works including installation of data caballing
  • Supply & install air conditioning system within the converted office space
  • Commercial blinds supplied and installed
  • Supply and fit vinyl flooring
  • Installed & FD60 fire doors certified under our IFC Accreditation

Because Tate and Morgan offer such an extensive range of commercial building services including passive fire protection, we were able to carry out all the work requested in the tender to our usual high standards.
