KJ Tait Engineers
Demolition of two buildings and the construction of one seven-storey building with Cat A office spaces on the upper floors and retail provision on the lower two floors.
The works include underpinning, construction of a new reinforced-concrete box up to ground floor, RC core and steel-frame structure with precast floors. The façade is constructed from a combination of traditional natural stone with handset bricks and contemporary windows that complement the surrounding buildings. Key features include the new colonnade to the ground floor and introduction of a passageway linking Frederick’s Place to Ironmonger Lane. The scheme also includes the demolition of No 5 Frederick’s Place and the construction of a new archive space for The Mercers’ Company.
