Galliford Try has been chosen by Resolution Property to revamp an historic London office block in a major £36m overhaul.

The building arm of the firm will work on the Alphabeta office building located in central London.

It will involve a full refurbishment of the Triton Court London office block on Finsbury Square; with the overhaul of the 220,000 sq ft of office space designed to cater further to its tenants, including those in the creative industries, as well as media and technology firms.

A further 22,000 sq ft of retail and restaurant space will also be developed on the ground and basement floors of the office block. It will also feature a ride in cycle ramp.

The firm is one of the UK’s biggest housebuilding and construction groups and its chief executive, Greg Fitzgerald said the company was proud to have been chosen to carry out the work.

He said: “We are delighted to have been selected by Resolution for such a prestigious scheme in Central London.
