Comprehensive refurbishment including recladding, internal structural reconfiguration and additional floor


Upgrading and converting an existing building with significant structural alterations to uplift rentable area and provide efficient and modern column-free office space with ground floor retail.


We were appointed at feasibility stage to review all options. Thorough interrogation of the structure and fire strategy enabled the removal of the secondary staircase, gaining net area and improving the core configuration.

The additional lightweight top floor enjoys terraces and unfettered views of the City and the property is in a prime location to benefit from Crossrail.
