Nestled between Farringdon Station and Barbican Underground, the Grade II listed building underwent two years of renovation and construction work to create a highly innovative mixed-use commercial space. The scheme was designed to seamlessly blend 19th Century Victorian heritage with striking 21st Century modern architecture. An adjoining new-build development was constructed, following a series of demolition works, to remove a number of 1930s and 1950s extensions from the site. These have been replaced with an impressive contemporary design, with concrete finishes throughout and an interconnecting atria linking to the existing building.
Stortford Interiors’ in-house Joinery Division, Parkrose, were appointed by Wates Construction to design, deliver and install an extensive Joinery fit-out package.
Scope of Works
Parkrose were responsible for the delivery of a broad joinery fitout scope. The expansive remit included stained European oak doorsets, paint grade riser doorsets, solid European oak external doors, ironmongery, stained oak slatted wall linings and casings to FCU’s, skirtings, window boards and linings, internal screens, TG&V ceiling linings and FF&E. In addition, extensive repairs to the existing joinery and replacement glazing to the Grade II listed existing building, were also undertaken.
The scheme was delivered to peerless quality standards and satisfied exacting and demanding client expectations.
