Our works at Tintagel House involve a two storey RC frame extension and complete external refurbishment the existing, 1960’s 12 storey commercial office building. Tintagel house is located on the Albert Embankment neighbouring the famous MI6 building and abutting the River Thames.
Once complete Tintagel House will provide 78,000 sqft of new serviced office accommodation for use by The Office Group.
Extensive enabling works on this scheme will encompass the further strip out of the existing toilet cores, the formation of five full height risers and the installation of extensive structural steel to the 11th floor to facilitate the lift shaft extensions and a roof (12th floor) terrace. Additional works include, carbon fibre concrete strengthening to the existing frame, lift refurbishment, window refurbishment, and the cleaning of, and remedial repairs to, the stone and brick cladding.
The main extension works will comprise of the demolition of the existing two storey entrance, the removal of the existing façade at ground and first-floor level to facilitate the construction of a two storey reinforced concrete frame. The new shell extension will be clad with brick and ceramic rainscreen, and double height curtain walling and a green accessible roof terrace. External works will include new hardscape full-length steps to the whole front facade and a new storm water head wall connection into the River Thames.
This scheme presents a number of specific challenges that we are able to manage and overcome, including the building’s location on and red route, and the adjacent construction of the Thames Tideway Tunnel during our programme of works.
The managing of relationships will be key to the successful delivery of this scheme and, as such, we will keep constant dialogue with key stakeholders, including TfL, the Port of London Authority, the Marine Management Organisation, the Highways Agency and the Environmental Agency.Lets work together
