How can this be?

I work in an office that is a part of a complex called City Works Depo. It’s an outdated, low level, industrial looking building that has sub spaces devided into offices. All the internal walls are metal. Apparently tenants are not allowed to update or modify anything unless they put in fake walls, basically making sure the original interior is intact… Anyway.

Our neighbour on one side is… The toilets. On the other – land owner –  management of the building. Roughly since December they have been doing serious works, hammering, drilling, grinding, through the metal walls devising us, wood, concrete and the likes. This is all due to the fact they were moving the wall s few metres to take away from our office and expand theirs. I think the best day was when we had clients come in and they were grinding on the metal during the meetings, by that particular day we actually had shit flying around, sparks as well…

But the most surprising thing about all this that NOBODY from our company’s management tried or did anything about it at all. To be fair, is sue them for loss of business at least if they don’t give a ruling duck about health and safety…

So, it’s mid August and the works continue, every fucking day… Best days are when they work on the deviding wall… I feel like walking into that office, grabbing the drill and shoving it in their faces…

I am speechless as to the lack of action from the management or anyone at all really, as we’re not the only business hearing all this bullshit. Anyways. Seems we found a solution, will be trying to move offices in a few weeks time… Who knows where that might lead… sigh

They’re spending so much time that they could have easily build another complex like that, not refebrish one single office… 

The other thing is that this metal tin office is normally a sound resonating box, just to give you an idea, when birds land or walk, you can hear them loud and clear. When the rain gets heavier you can’t actually hear a normal conversation, so imagine how pleasant it is to listen to building works.
