The refurbishment/redevelopment works of this historical site for Workspace Group PLC.

Stace have successfully completed numerous projects with Workspace Group to help expand and upgrade their building portfolios which has seen huge growth over the years in the shared/ collaborative working environment.

In 2016, Stace were appointed by Workspace Group PLC to manage the five month programme of the refurbishment/ redevelopment works of this historical site.

Our Role

Stace undertook Contract Administration, Cost Management, Party Wall and H&S Advisor roles for the project. The building and location presented numerous challenges from strict planning and tenant noise restrictions to unforeseen underground services and ground conditions.

Our Impact

Stace delivered a programme of works revolving around the Ground Floor extension and Basement and Ground Floor remodelling and refurbishment works within an occupied building. This created a new reception, café/ dining space, shared meeting rooms, collaborative working spaces, shower and wc cubicles, kitchen and other ancillary rooms.

Despite numerous trial pits and ground investigations pre-contract, Stace discovered historic basement vaults and unforeseen below ground services during excavations, which required urgent investigations and the subsequent redesign of the foundations/ scheme. This required close management of design and costs.

The end product has provided a great new facility that meets the clients on trend design for servicing their existing building whilst providing meeting rooms and a welcoming meeting point and central focus for the Leather Market site.

The works have been well received by existing building tenants and the café has seen a huge influx of custom since opening providing a much needed focal point for the historic site.
