The scheme involves the demolition of Lombard House in the heart of the capital’s banking district to deliver 58,000 sq ft of Cat A office accommodation.
Perimeter basement walls will be supported as ISG carries out piling work ahead of the construction of the new 12-storey steel frame structure – which comprises two basement levels and 10 above ground floors.
The new building significantly expands the available volume of lettable office space through the addition of two upper storeys and the extension of the footprint of the former building onto Lombard Street.
Stuart Deverill, ISG’s southern regional managing director, said: “Our early stage involvement, through the two-stage procurement process, has proved instrumental in identifying programme efficiencies, as well as establishing and resolving key buildability issues.
“This approach is ideally suited to challenging projects where our wealth of experience and ability to rigorously interrogate the design brief facilitates innovation, paving the way for successful delivery.”
