CAT A renovation of a Grade I listed building

This 5 storey terraced property was renovated to provide modern office accommodation whilst retaining many of its original features. The design and physical works to this Grade I listed building were undertaken in close consultation with consultant TFT and the London Borough of Camden’s conservation officer.

Internal works comprised new floor coverings and joinery and repairs to ceilings and walls including decorative plasterwork detailing. Built between 1776 and 1781, the property retains much of the interior plasterwork typical of the period; this called for a sensitive approach throughout the works.

M&E upgrades included the refurbishment of the existing lift car, installation of a new comfort cooling system and new lighting throughout including feature chandeliers. New toilets, a kitchen and a shower room were installed in the basement.

Externally the existing slated roof slopes were overhauled and repairs were made to lead flashings, brick parapets, chimney stacks and joinery. Stabilisation, re-pointing and general cleaning were also provided to some areas of brickwork on the building’s south facing façade which fronts the splendid Georgian Bedford Square.

Our client was thrilled with the end result as was the new tenant upon occupation of the offices.
