184-192 Drummond Street, a former textiles warehouse and the previous home of the Guinness World Records, will provide in excess of 26,000 sq ft of office accommodation on the lower ground, ground, and four upper floors.
Working in partnership with the client; Threadneedle, Oakmont are renovating floors one and three to CAT A level.
Reconfiguration works include the provision of new toilet and shower facilities, alongside the conversion of a former lift shaft into service riser, and the removal of internal walls.
Refurbishment of the existing metal windows, with secondary glazing installed to increase thermal performance, also come under Oakmont’s remit at Drummond Street.
Many of the buildings original architectural features are to be retained, and these, along with the excellent natural lighting and open plan floor plates, will give the premises a fresh and contemporary feel.
To achieve the desired internal finish, Oakmont will work to expose the original cast iron structure of the building, including riveted plate columns, decorate and, in parts refurbish, the existing internal brickwork.
Oakmont will provide new services, including a gas fired cooler and zumtobel light fittings. Services located on the ceilings are designed to be exposed to add to the industrial feel of the offices.
Common areas, including the reception area, main staircases, and landings, will also be refreshed, including the installation of new light fittings, floor finishes, and decoration, as well as a new signage box and postage boxes.
Works are phased, with some activities being carried out outside of normal working hours, in order to deliver the project within an occupied building with little to no disruption of the tenants.Lets work together
