|Project Scope||Office Refurbishment|
|Project Status||Partially Complete|
The Portland stone facade of the original 1927 building overlooking the Bank of England was retained during the substantial 1990s redevelopment. The current use comprises commercial and retail space.
Following a detailed feasibility study investigating a range of options including demolition and new build, roof extensions and light touch refurbishment, the client decided to execute a full refurbishment.
The project comprises six floors of highly specified Grade A accommodation and a new entrance space incorporating a blend of traditional materials such as black American walnut, bronze and ceramics with Corian formed into contemporary benching and a reception desk. Additional nett lettable area is created through a rationalisation of cores and lobby spaces.
The addition of four new retail units facing Coleman Street, adds value to the ground floor, and transforms the local streetscape.
The project is due to be completed in early 2018.
