Propitas were appointed by Boultebee Brooks Real Estate as Project Manager and Cost Consultant on the refurbishment of 2 Sheen Road, an office building in Richmond, London.
The property comprised a concrete framed structure and floors, with raised access flooring and brick-built elevations, constructed in the mid to late 1980s. The project involved full strip out to shell condition; construction of a new roof mansard, terraced rear extensions, new facades, full internal CAT A refurbishment including new MEP installations, new lift services and a substation. The property now offers modern office accommodation over 5 floors, reception, shower, and cycle storage, extending the GIA to 30,000 sq. ft.
The scheme was traditionally designed and procured. The architects were GPAD Ltd, services consultants MWL Group and structural engineer GDC Partnership. The construction works were completed by Westgreen Construction.
The project took 80 weeks with a £6.7m construction value.
