Project Manager: Andrzej Gasiorowski (Head of electrical works)
Timing: 19 months
(from April 2014 to January 2016)
Mimar was asked to completely revamp the electrics in this historic sailor’s shelter to fit the contemporary hostel that it is today. We ensured that it worked in the most intuitive manner, while meeting all the current safety standards. State of the art security systems were included, along with a complete CCTV installation. We renovated the plant room and created a robust ventilation system to ensure everything around the hostel worked efficiently. A hi-tech telecom system was fitted so that all communication types are available throughout the building. Ensuring that the history of the building was reflected in the transformation made this a complex project, so we had weekly meetings with the client, designers and architects to make sure all parties were working in complete collaboration with each other.
