Alva St, Edinburgh

Alva St offices were bought by a commercial developer to turn into their own operational HQ in Edinburgh.
The building had been empty for some time, and there were some time constraints and services issues to overcome to achieve the client’s desired end result.

We were awarded the Contract after an open tender and interview selection process, the design specifications were confirmed and we had 12 working weeks to carry out the entire renovation and upgrading, including new kitchenettes, bathrooms, partial rewire, cabling infrastructure, overhauling of heating system; sash and case window overhaul; internal structural alterations, plaster repairs; decoration and carpets.

The Contract was handed over, to design spec, on time, and on budget.

Our project was really well managed from the outset. The initial quote was comprehensive and left no surprises. The communication throughout the job was constant and easy to understand, in 'non-builder language'. We genuinely felt that HM Raitt put our best interests first and we will use them time and again'.
