Client: John Lewis Partnership
Peter Jones is Grade II listed, and one of the flagship department stores in the John Lewis Partnership portfolio.
The project was a complex internal infill project with multiple phases of work with the key client directive that the store must continue trading throughout.
Lateral Technologies & Solutions Ltd were employed by the John Lewis Partnership as part of the project team as commissioning managers. Our brief was to introduce a full soft landing approach over the five year project. This included full design review of proposed installation, in-house training of the new installations during all phases, liaison with the branch maintenance team and authorities, along with the witnessing, programming and reporting of the complete M&E installation.
Due to the extent of work and the continual operation of the store a very proactive management process was required. This was successfully achieved by maintaining a team on site throughout the construction programme, resulting in a successful handover and a branch maintenance team who were fully conversant with the M&E installation.
