The site and existing buildings at Edinburgh were acquired in a heavily-dilapidated state, requiring significant investment in the existing building envelope prior to commencement of the fit-out works. Health Technical Memorandum (HTM) 20 regulations dictate a significant proportion of the standards that needed to be met for the facility. However, in addition to the HTM, the team were responsible for translating the Co-op specification requirements to create a new model specification flagship facility that was bespoke for the business. As part of the Edinburgh mortuary development, a new logistics hub was created to provide the Client with a vehicle maintenance and storage facility.
A spokesman for Co-operative Funeralcare, said:“Aside from the Funeralcare environment, Shelby has also been successful in working with my colleagues in The Co-operative to deliver our new digital hub (Federation), Food Refit Projects and numerous Special Projects, including Planned Asset Renewal workstreams and the recent Food rebrand programme. Based on my experience and with context of the role that Shelby has fulfilled for Co-op, I would have no hesitation in recommending Shelby as a Project Management consultant.”
