We are delighted to announce our Cat A refurbishment of the seven-storey Landmark House at 69 Leadenhall Street has drawn to completion.
Our super team led by Graham Ward and Brendan O’ Donovan carried out the 73-week scheme on the behalf of a confidential client with the objective of producing high-quality Grade A office accommodation for let.
Releasing as much of the buildings asset potential as possible involved careful design coordination from the outset to ensure every square foot counted.
Located on a prominent junction between Leadenhall Street and Fenchurch Street and with several other construction schemes in progress nearby, the project coincided with the redevelopment of the Aldgate Gyratory and saw the team work in close collaboration with the City of London throughout the construction period.
Internally, our team installed new electrical and mechanical services on all office floors, with new toilets throughout the building core and new ceilings with raised floors. The ground and basement floors were also split to provide retail space and the main entrance for office staff; this included a new reception area with feature walls made from distressed timber and perforated metal paneling, a bespoke desk as well as new sliding entrance doors.
Works within the basement included the installation of new drainage and the construction of new tiled WCs and shower rooms. The existing elevators were refreshed and the central air conditioning unit upgraded to a smaller, more efficient system.
Renown for post-modernist architecture, the exterior of Landmark House has been revamped. Former red granite has been swapped for a more neutral tone. The building was also re-sprayed and its iconic masthead replaced.
It’s not all goodbye to the old and in with the new, the refurbishment has created a contemporary spin on an 80’s design and the Cat A space is ready for market.
