Fitzwilliam House is situated in the centre of the City, near iconic landmarks such as 30 St Mary Axe, also known as “The Gherkin.”
West 1 was selected for three different building contracts to perform upscale renovations to the main reception space on the ground floor, as well as the offices on the 2nd and 6th floors.
For the main reception refurbishment, West 1 started by stripping back the existing finishes to the shell and core. To ensure minimal disruption to the fully tenanted building and its 1,500 daily footfall, temporary reception desk provision and covered timber walkways were installed during the construction period, which was limited to out of normal business hours.
On the 2nd and 6th floors, West 1 carried out a comprehensive Landlord CAT A refurbishment to prepare the spaces for future tenant occupation. This involved fully stripping back both floors to the base build structure and reconfiguring MEPH services to suit the new open plan layout.
Bespoke SAS metal pan ceilings were designed and installed, along with new design lighting and life security systems. West 1 also installed new electrac and cable distribution containment, followed by a new raised access floor for new finishes. Additionally, the existing passenger lift doors and reveals were refinished, and all wall finishes re-decorated to leave a 'white box'. Finally, the windows were re-sprayed to complete the refurbishment.
