The refurbishment project for Seaforth Land is on Greville Street, adjacent to Holborn’s historic Bleeding Heart Yard in central London.
RED Construction Group will install a historically-inspired mesh façade and new windows authentic to the period, complementing the surrounding Hatton Garden Conservation Area.
The refurbishment will retain much of the existing structure and use of Cross Laminated Timber to create two extra floors on top.
The total refurbishment will span the building’s 35,566 sq ft of floorspace, with the basement, ground and first floor levels fronting both Greville Street and Bleeding Heart Yard to be renovated and adapted for retail and restaurant use.
Graham Sturge, Managing Director of RED Construction, said: “We are proud to have the opportunity to deliver on the vision of Seaforth Land’s CEO, Tyler Goodwin to create an authentic historical restoration in collaboration with architect Groupwork + Amin Taha.
Marcus Hale, Chief Development Officer at Seaforth Land, added: “The view from the new Crossrail Station at Farringdon, looking up Greville Street, will be greatly enhanced and made more inviting once we are finished with the project.”
