Major structural works took place across the three lower floors of 30 Charing Cross Road, fully completed to a shell and core standard ready for fitting out by an incoming tenant. Whilst retaining the four floors above, in live occupational use, we managed extremely intricate build logistics around the busy central London setting.

30 Charing Cross Road is superbly located in the heart of Leicester Square with all the retail opportunities this incredibly popular West End, Covent Garden Conservation Area site boasts. The building includes a basement, sits on the corner St Martin’s Court and is bordered by 3 kiosks. St Martin’s Court has restaurants and bars spilling out onto it, with seating and a charming London outdoor dining atmosphere.

Gascoyne Holdings Ltd’s undertook these major alteration works comprised of absorbing these 3 kiosks and part of 28 Charing Cross Road into the enlarged building footprint and interlining the basement, ground and first floors to form a new three storey 3,078 sq ft restaurant and retail unit with side-facing orientation onto St Martin’s Court.

With the extensive range of pre-construction site investigations, surveys and detailed design requirements, including the development of a robust Construction Management Plan and temporary works methodology ahead of tender, the works are being procured on a traditional basis under a JCT Standard Building Contract. Given the importance of these plans and methodologies to the success of the build, an extended post-tender/pre-contract award period is being adopted to further develop these documents in tangent with selecting the construction team.
