Morgan Sindall to revamp old Daily Mail HQ into London office space

The property construction and regeneration firm Morgan Sindall has won a £25m contract to redevelop the Grade II listed building known as Carmelite House.

The company will be giving the old Daily Mail and Evening News headquarters a huge overhaul – generating more office space for the City of London.

Once complete, the new building located on Victoria Embankment will offer around 20,000 sq ft of prime London office space spread over its eight floors.

At present the building features six upper floors as well as a basement and lower ground floor.

The project will include the replacement of windows and a facade as well as the remodeling of the buildings floor plates.

Further changes will be made to the buildings atrium and cores to not only improve the natural lighting of the offices, but also create two separate tenant spaces on each floor.

A 7,500 sq ft roof terrace will also be a key feature of the building.

The building has been designed by Fletcher Priest Architects and was previously home to Associated Newspaper Ltd, publishers of newspapers including the Evening News and Daily Mail, for a number of decades.

Morgan Sindall London office managing director, Peter Jacobs, said: “We are very pleased to have been appointed to this distinctive scheme by Quadrant Estates, which will breathe new life into this characterful building.”

The firm most recently completed a £65m office department in Agar Street, located in the West End, for Legal & General Property.

The company’s Carmelite House project is set to be complete by April 2014.
