Project Profile

This project involved the redevelopment of 38,000ft2 of Category A office space within the City of London. This space was upgraded to a trading floor with support and meeting rooms. The project included the installation of new mechanical and electrical services in addition to the conversion of the existing services to suit the client’s preferred layout. Being a trading floor, the electrical system needed to be resilient so that in the unlikely event of a failure of a part of the system or incoming supply, the trading floor would still be able to function.

 

Works included 

  • New 2000ft2 Comms Room
  • Two 300ft2 electrical intake rooms
  • Seven conference and meeting rooms
  • Trading Floor for 300 dealers
  • Two teapoint areas
  • General offices
  • New Reception area
  • Upgrading electrical supplies to meet client’s requirements
