Demolition of existing rebuild to create a new mixed development, featuring retail and restaurant use at ground and lower ground and commercial spaces on floors 1 to 6. The design features brick and faience cladding designed in sympathy with the local architecture on a tight corner site in the heart of Soho.

Administration/Employer’s Agent services have been carried out from project inception with the team taking the scheme through a challenging planning process.

The project was procured on a two stage JCT Design & Build form of contract with the design having been completed to Stage 4 before novation of the design team to the contractor. Demolition has been carried out on a standalone contract direct with the client with the main contractor having an overseeing role as part of the Pre-construction services they are providing under the two stage procurement route.

Close engagement with the supply chain has taken place to ensure keen interest in the project and ensure information for tendering purposes is complete to reduce the risk of scope slip and identify key constraints in the construction process. This has helped reduce the construction risks before the works commenced on site.
