AMR was appointed to manage the internal and external refurbishment and remodelling of a popular multi-media library, language centre, cinema and French bistro at the French Institute, incluing the creation of a full height lift. The works had to take place while the rest of the Institut Francais’s facilties remained open – part of the library; the bistro; and the cinema. This was challenging given the extent of demolition required to breakthrough for the new lift shaft. A lot of works was done with the contractor to try and sequence the works such that the disruption was kept to a minimum.
