Case Study - Hertz, Ellesmere Port The success of the Liverpool project lead to the client appointing C21 as main contractor for the construction of a new two story office complex, valet workshop building and vehicle display area. Contemporary lines were again achieved by the use of silver composite cladding and “alucobond” curved panels. The external steel staircase was fabricated using the finest gauge materials to avoid its looking ungainly against the composite cladding. Internally the use of specialist glazed partitioning maintains a spacious office environment whilst ensuring segregation and sound proofing where required. Decoration completed to exacting standards and air conditioning units installed throughout completes the very high specification of these offices. The decision to upgrade the sanitary ware, cubicles and vanity units was a wise one, as the pictures illustrate. Effective purchasing meant that the premium involved for this upgrade was very minor. Initial ground surveys found the ground conditions to be poor, to the extent that concrete piling was initially recommended by the engineer. This is renowned as a very expensive process, therefore alternatives were sought.   After negotiation between C21, structural engineers and several specialist firms, a much more cost effective alternative was found, using vibro-compaction methods. The saving amounted to thousands of pounds. The final “plate loading” tests carried out to ensure the structural suitability of the finished ground make-up came back with positive results, well over minimum requirements.
