Background

Demolition and construction of a six storey office development in Soho, London.

Our Role

Stace were appointed in a Cost Management capacity.

Our Impact

The development consists of six upper floors and a basement constructed of a combination of steel frame and concrete flat slabs.

The first phase of this project included the demolition of the existing 1960s office building, which had been hastily constructed after the original building was bombed during the Second World War. Great Pulteney Street was developed as part of the Pulteney  Estate during the early eighteenth century and many of the original buildings remain standing. Architects Wilkinson Eyre worked to produce a design which was in keeping with the site’s vast heritage, whilst also drafting inspiration and bridging the gap to the more modern developments within the West End.

The second phase included the construction of the new office building. Elevations include pre-cast cladding, faced with Portland stone to the front and glazed white bricks to the rear. The upper floors have glazed façades and an accessible green roof terrace. Principle design features include adiabatic cooling, LG7 lighting, raised access floors, exposed flat soffits and bespoke public art railings.

The completed building has rejuvenated a significant site on a major road in Soho, providing support to the numerous creative industries within the area and achieving a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’.
