High-end fit-out breathes new lease of life into Grade II* listed office building
Overlooking Green Park, 117 Piccadilly is a beautiful listed building made up of Portland stone, featuring 5 storeys and a basement. Internally, the building was in need of updating to stay competitive in the London office market and to attract new tenants.
ITC were appointed to carry out a comprehensive CAT A fit-out to maximise the lettable floor space, and external repairs to protect and enhance the appearance of the building.
Internal fit-out works of six floors
Extensive internal structural alterations were required to achieve the desired spaces. Demolition works included enclosing walls and suspended ceilings.
We installed new partitions, suspended ceilings, raised metal floors, doors and frames, fixtures and fittings, decorations, and floor finishes to create Grade A office space.
The team replaced the existing lift with a new passenger lift and formed wall openings in the basement and lightwell.
New mechanical, electrical and public health services were installed throughout the floors. The team also installed new WC facilities, complete with all new sanitaryware.
Externally, we carried out the refurbishment of secondary glazing, to enhance the appearance of the windows and shutters.
Protecting the buildings historic and architectural significance
The building sits within the City of Westminster and Mayfair Conservation area and is subject to regulations which protect its unique character.
Minimising noise and pollution control
The team overcame several challenges throughout the project, one of which included complying with the Control of Pollution Act which focuses on the best practicable means of minimising noise on site.
The team used quieter plant and machinery during work hours and along with the appropriate silencers, mufflers or acoustic covers when carrying out noisy works. The team also had to prevent nuisance from dust and smoke, we did this by ensuring it was controlled at source, using a continuous fine water spray.
To minimise disruption to local residents and businesses, our site team kept in regular contact with them regarding works.
