2009 Refurbishment

Originally constructed in 1957, and standing at 36.8 m, the tired high-rise office block adjacent to Waterloo station was transformed with a series of extensions, new façade cladding and new plant and services, including underfloor air conditioning.

The extensive refurbishment completed in 2009 included extensions to the lower level floor plates.  The twelfth storey was removed and replaced by a luxury steel framed top, creating five, penthouse apartments with external terraces, and the new cladding incorporates black anodized aluminium spandrels and frames, which feature floor to ceiling window elements and contrast the smooth white render for the building’s solid surfaces.  The remaining ten floors have air-conditioned office accommodation due to the increased plant capacity.
