Briggs & Forrester Special Project’s The Chocolate Factory Progress

Briggs & Forrester Special Projects are well underway with their works to The Chocolate Factory, London, working in collaboration with Blenheim House Construction. The building, located in Wood Green, was once the 1904 founded Barratt’s Confectionary factory and is now owned by Workspace Group who are developing it into a mixed use development as part of the Wood Green Cultural Quarter and regeneration area for Haringey Council.

The project is progressing well into the second fix stage of the construction process with lighting, small power, life safety systems, VRF system, toilet extract and sanitaryware all being completed. Shortly the commissioning process will commence with the electrical dead testing in readiness for the main electrical intake to be energised in early July. At this point the mechanical VRF systems will be pressure tested and the R32 gas installed. Once the building is energised the AHU and ventilation systems will be balanced, disinfection and Chlorination of the water systems in readiness for project completion.
