Pexhurst was instructed as the main contractor on this project to manage the complete refurbishment of existing office space to floors 1 and 3, retaining original period features where possible.
The building dates to the late 19th Century and is in a superb location at the entrance to Great Eastern Street.
A second phase of the project saw the conversion of residential space on floors 4 and 5 to office space, opening the fifth floor up to provide a striking galleried mezzanine.
The client also requested that Pexhurst oversaw the refurbishment of common areas including the main entrance and stair core, secondary staircase and escape route. The basement was also completely refurbished with bright new shower rooms and a bike store installed.
A final phase of the project saw Pexhurst redecorate the outside of the building and overhaul the existing sash windows, restoring them to their former glory.
To ensure the specification set by the client was met within the 20-week programme, Pexhurst also oversaw the implementation of new M&E services in all areas, along with the implementation of condensers, AC units and core heaters.
The Great Eastern Street project was delivered on time and to the praise of the client who said: “Thank you for all your work at Great Eastern Street which has produced an excellent product that our agents are confident will let swiftly.”
