ISG has been awarded a £30 million project to refurbish the first six floors of the Adelphi Building.
The international construction services company has been appointed by American multinational investment banking and asset management firm, Blackstone, to refurbish the first six floors of the Grade II London office building.
Situated in the City of Westminster, the iconic Art Deco building overlooks the Victoria Embankment. The refurbishment project will see ISG deliver 190,000 sq ft of category A open office space spread across the six floors. ISG will also reinstate internal light wells to increase the amount of natural light that enters the building’s lower levels, as well as install new high performance glass windows – to replace the smoked glass windows currently installed.
Its top floors will remain occupied for the duration of the project.
Having been awarded the project, Alan McCarthy-Wyper, ISG Construction’s managing director, stated: “We are once again delighted to be supporting Blackstone across its extensive property portfolio, delivering a high quality and efficient refurbishment solution to comprehensively modernise facilities at the Adelphi Building in London’s West End.
“With the building part-occupied, in a busy central location and historically significant, the project encompasses a raft of challenges requiring a real breadth and depth of technical experience and effective implementation.”
Work at the Adelphi Building is scheduled for completion next summer (2015).
