This was a high quality and extensive refurbishment of a Grade II Listed Bank Headquarters to form new Grade A office accommodation. The project was shortlisted for Best West End Refurbishment / Regeneration Award 2018 by the Office Agent’s Society.
The refurbishment project provided 22,000ft2 of office accommodation and comprised developer’s Cat ‘A’ office fit out with a spa and restaurant in the basement. A challenging and complex project it included installation of a new passenger lift, shaft and lift pit; new mezzanine floor; lowering of the entrance area slab and extensive mechanical and electrical services including fan coils and under floor ventilation. Externally facades were refurbished, and replacement windows installed with the listed building envelope.
Shell restaurant accommodation was provided within the basement and on the ground floor. Sensitive logistics and noisy works planning was essential to cater for the spa in the basement and Lower Ground Floors that remained in use throughout the currency of the works with the associated installation and maintenance of access and fire escapes routes.
