We were appointed by the client as Project Manager & Contract Administrator for this project which consisted of a full refurbishment and 2 storey extension of an existing office building in Shorts Gardens. The project included the enlargement of the existing 7 meter deep basement to provide entertainment and associated ancillary space.

The re-opening of the existing brick arches celebrates the building’s heritage whilst also activating the streetscape creating a more inviting and secure environment.

4 new residential units are provided in Betterton Street with cycle storage in the basement, plus potential use of the ground floor coffee shop, yoga studio or gallery space.

The new set back roof terrace incorporates planting and sustainable green roofs.

Public realm improvements and safer street lighting along Short Gardens were part of the S106 agreement requirements.
