Delivering for Landlords
Our full design and build refurbishment of Inigo House, a five storey period property in the heart of Covent Garden is complete!
Briefed to transform the current building conditions (both internally as well as externally) into a boutique, high-end office, our concept pushes the trend of ‘English Modern’, embracing both contemporary design with a deep recognition of the architect Inigo Jones. Considered the first English architect of the modern period, Jones’ notable works can be seen nearby in the planning of Covent Garden, St Paul’s Church in Covent Garden, The Banqueting House in Whitehall and Somerset House on the Strand.
A historic property, we have replaced the exterior balustrade with a design more in keeping with the local area and continued the detail within to create an aesthetic link between inside and out. At the front of the building a new bespoke door creates a sense of place and has a positive effect on the community.
Working alongside our project partners at BNP Paribas (asset manager / project manager), Fidgens (cost consultant), Inertia Construction Engineering (services consultant) and Twin & Earth (environmental and sustainability accredited professional), we set the target of BREEAM Excellent and are proud to have achieved it, along with an EPC rating: B -27, which is a fantastic result.
To achieve BREEAM Excellent, a vital element of the project was the replacement of the old and inefficient mechanical plant (air handling unit). In its place, high on the rooftop, we installed a new high efficiency air handler combined with identical condenser units serving each floor and common parts for seamless and standardised maintenance. This updated technology will also help individual tenants better control, measure and reduce energy usage.
The finished scheme has provided our client with a real estate offering of mixed Cat A and Cat A+ office accommodation; enabling a future occupier with a flexible, modern, elegant, and energy efficient workspace.
