ISG will reconfigure and retrofit Manfield House in the Strand to deliver commercial office accommodation rated as BREEAM excellent.
The contractor will strip out the eight-storey, 1930s building and carry out major internal structural alterations to create a central core with three passenger lifts, service risers and toilet facilities.
Complex temporary works are required to enable a ground floor retail unit and restaurant to continue to trade unaffected throughout the duration of the project.
A new enlarged reception area will be created at ground floor level, and the existing feature staircase to first floor level will be refurbished and modernised. Approximately 40,000 sq ft GIA of open plan office accommodation will be fitted out to Cat A standard and externally, the building’s Portland Stone façade will be cleaned and repaired, windows replaced and a plant deck and screen installed at roof level.
The project is scheduled for completion at the end of 2012.
