188 Fleet Street - London
188 Fleet Street was, until recently, the home of Coutts and Co Bank in the City of London. Our client purchased the 35,000 sq ft building in 2013 and we immediately set about a major refurbishment to house our client's publishing company.
Strict time constraints restricted the project’s programme, meaning that the required information could not be prepared and procured through a traditional tender process. Instead, we designed and tendered each section of work with approved sub-contractors, keeping the client informed of projected and actual costs.
The project was completed in 2016 and provides the end user with a dynamic daylighting system which controls the light intensity and colour to match a sensor positioned on the roof. This helps to maintain the natural body clocks of the staff. On the floors above, 22,000 sq ft of office accommodation has been introduced including a new level on top of the building.
