Enabling Works at Former NatWest Bank, Allhallows, Bedford

SCOPE:Internal strip out and building works to facilitate sale of the building


C Jackson & Sons were awarded the contract by Bedford Borough Council for enabling works to facilitate sale of the building.

We were Principle Contractor for the project which involved the construction of site hoardings, removal of asbestos, demolition and reinstatement works.

The former bank is located in Bedford town centre in a busy shopping area. Adjoining buildings are occupied and the car park to the rear of the building is used by staff from adjacent properties.

An ATM machine located on the ground floor of the building remained operational throughout the works

We established the site and isolated services leaving the ATM fully operational and accessible.
