7 Savoy Court, a Grade II listed building, was built in 1889 by Richard D’Oyly Carte and is located adjacent to the famous Savoy Hotel on the South side of the Strand. The 8-floor office building also boasts basement facilities for commuters.
West 1 completed two separate contracts for the building. The first involved the strip out of floors LG-4th to the shell and core. The second was a comprehensive CAT A refurbishment, including the creation of new toilet cores for floors 5-8.
The project presented various logistical obstacles, mainly because of the shared covered approach with the Savoy Hotel and the recently refurbished reception of 7 Savoy Court. This approach was the sole access and exit point for all construction activities within the building, requiring special care and attention to maintain cleanliness and protect the space throughout each contract.
The project involved two phases:
In Phase 1, West 1 conducted a strip-out to the shell and core of levels LG-4th floor within the occupied building, while floors 4-8 were tenanted. All construction activities, waste transfers, and deliveries were conducted via the main, recently refurbished reception of the occupied building. To prevent and avoid significant disruption to the building's operation, significant logistical planning and management were required.
In Phase 2, West 1 conducted a strip-out to the shell and core of levels 5-8 within the occupied building (floors LG-4th), followed by extensive CAT A refurbishment and the creation of new toilet blocks on all floors. Once again, the main GF reception was the main thoroughfare for all construction activities.
