Transforming space in London’s city centre

The Wates Group is one of the largest family owned construction, property services and development companies in the United Kingdom. Wates Construction were working on the redevelopment of One Sherwood Street at Piccadilly Circus, transforming the space behind the iconic Piccadilly Lights into offices, shops and apartments.


When traditional cabins are not an option, choose internal site rooms

Wates required temporary welfare facilities to accommodate workers on site. Due to the site’s busy central London location, the use of traditional cabins were not an option. “The open site also required weatherproofing as it was imperative to keep the floor plate clean and dry to continue on site works”.
