Delivering Flex Office Space In London’s Second Tallest Building

Our longstanding clients The Office Group set our team the challenge of constructing their latest flex office space in Canary Wharf, within London’s second tallest building One Canada Square tower. 

No stranger to a challenge or two, our project director, Graham Ward (who delivered The Office Group’s Tintagel House scheme) and team lent their skills and expertise to this complex fit-out and refurbishment, which involved the construction of 80,000 sq ft of flexible coworking space across levels 7, 8 and 9. 

The design scheme created by architects dMFK retains the fabric of the building’s original foyer with Terrazzo and Sapele timber, which is the main feature throughout. All three floors are connected by a new steel and timber staircase, installed by our team, which features a Sapele handrail, fluted rear walls and Sapele treads. 

The staircase installation formed a highly structural element of the project, involving the strip out and removal of the existing staircase, which required in filling the structural slab and cutting through two floors. 

Large floor to ceiling windows, exposed services and quality finishes come as standard in this modern and spacious fit-out, together with lounges and breakout areas, 16 fully-equipped meeting rooms, coworking spaces, a café and gym. To support such standout amenities, we installed a full mechanical and electrical works package including a plant and two comms rooms to enable incoming tenants to hit the ground running.

The result is another exceptional flex office development delivered by our team on behalf of The Office Group, one we’re proud to have played a part in creating. 

If you’re ever looking for a stunning office to work in within Canary Wharf, why not pop in and take a peek, the views of the city are amazing too.
