In addition to the introduction of the 5th floor, the NLA on the lower floors was increased by diamond cutting the ring beam and extending the floor-plate inboard. The area of the atrium was reduced but the quality was dramatically improved by the feature glazing. Terraces were created on the 1st, 2nd and 5th floors and a new stone façade to the east elevation was constructed.
To minimise the impact on the Conservation Area and maximise the rental stream for the new fifth floor, plant was located within an acoustic enclosure on the 4th floor.
“We are delighted with the way the Design Team have successfully transformed a tired, outdated building into a modern, prime workplace which hides behind the two historic façades and the overhauled Agar Street frontage.
The design and delivery of the building has given Legal & General a fantastic product to let and they are very proud of its addition to their portfolio.” Simon Wilkes, Head of Development at Legal and General Property.
