    Refurbishment and extension to the old Charters Building at 102 New Street to provide 112,000sqft of CAT A offices.

    Works include the creation of four new lift cores to provide harmonised vertical movement through an otherwise incoherent space. The ground floor was reconstructed to form a grand entrance lobby and the upper floors extended along Stephenson Street to provide a more modern and aesthetically pleasing elevation. The existing central void was infilled to create a more functional floor plate. All whilst being confined by a bustling high street, a picturesque arcade, a new metro line and with tenants occupying multiple storeys.

    Key Points:

    • Complete remodelling of the Stephenson Street Façade – complex terracotta panel/ curtain wall system
    • New double height grand reception area including a hung walkway
    • Addition of three storeys of office space with few strengthening works
    • Conversion of existing wall climber lift and façade replacement along New Street
    • Accommodation of completely new M&E services within a confined existing structure
    • Live environment
