Pacific Building is well versed in working within live environments in a manner that causes clients a minimal amount of disruption. The team is able to fast-track projects for completion as well as minimise any down-time while works are under way, so that clients can be confident of keeping their businesses running.
The team understands that, for many leisure and retail businesses, closure or poor experience would damage their customer relationships, which is why they place emphasis on ensuring that they take the best approach for each project by working closely with clients from the beginning.
One particular challenge the team rose to was the installation of a new beer system in 78 pubs in just 35 weeks, while ensuring that trade was able to continue as normal at peak trading hours.
Another was the upgrading of a listed building, The Meadowpark, Bridge of Allan, to form an upmarket restaurant and bar to standards that met the satisfaction of the client and the demands of Scottish Government agency Scottish Natural Heritage.
The firm has worked within a variety of environments, delivering a diverse range of projects for a number of sectors, from construction of new-builds, fit-outs, extensions and alterations to the refurbishment and upgrading of listed buildings.
Operating safely and sensitively in challenging or hazardous surroundings is another area where Pacific has established a wealth of experience. Many of the firm’s team hold airside passes, which means they have the experience and requisite clearance to work at airports in airside, landside and aircraft-manoeuvring areas.
