Carlton HouseLondon, United Kingdom
Enjoying a premium location in London's Regent Street, this 50,000 sq ft office building was extensively rebuilt behind a retained Grade II listed facade in the early 1990’s.
When the original tenants vacated the building in 2011, our institutional client instructed a team including Norman Disney & Young (NDY) to prepare a design for a refurbishment of the building.
The listed status of the exterior of the building and the sensitivity of the local environment were considered at all times when co-ordinating service routes with design and construction teams.
VRF air conditioning was selected to provide an energy efficient HVAC solution achieving a BREEAM Excellent rating, whilst maintaining tenant fitout flexibility. Whilst replacing the exposed plant at roof level, NDY took the opportunity to produce a less visually intrusive layout, improving rooftop views of the development from neighbouring buildings.
NDY played a key role in enhancing net area efficiency within the building through modifications to the existing firefighting lift arrangement to reduce lobby area.
