ISG InteriorExterior posts £12 million sorting office refurbishment

ISG InteriorExterior has been awarded a £12 million project, by developer Fabbriche Ceramiche Investments SARL, to transform the former Royal Mail Sorting Office on Howick Place in Victoria, SW London, into a home for prestigious art and design businesses. The company will remodel the interior of the building to accommodate gallery, exhibition space and a range of design studios aimed at high-end organisations, including Phillips de Pury & Company, the international fine art dealer, which has already taken space at the former sorting office.

ISG InteriorExterior has commenced work to refurbish the building to a shell and core finish, carrying out a raft of major structural alterations to provide purpose-built accommodation for new tenants. The largest of these structural elements sees the contractor tasked with constructing an additional penthouse floor on the building, which is located within the Westminster Cathedral Conservation area. The elegant steel portal frame designed structure with feature curtain walling will significantly increase the overall external capacity of the building to around 145,000sq ft.

Additional internal works include the creation of nine new apartments on the building’s Francis Street elevation, with ISG InteriorExterior also fitting these out to a shell and core finish. Existing mechanical and electrical systems will be replaced with new state-of-the-art services and four new passenger lifts and one goods lift will be installed. Within the basement, the company will construct a car stacker pit, demolish and reconstruct the existing vehicle access ramp and renew the large glazed roof over the internal courtyard.

Externally, ISG InteriorExterior will carry out the replacement of all windows within the building and carry out essential repairs and renovation to the impressive façade. The roof structure will be upgraded and plant areas constructed to house the new mechanical and electrical systems, with the project scheduled for completion by the end of 2007.

Steve Trotter, Managing Director of ISG InteriorExterior commented: "Howick Place typifies the challenging projects that ISG InteriorExterior routinely delivers to exacting customer specifications, with a complex programme of internal rationalisation and major structural works set within the context of a building that is being partially occupied and has limited site accessibility.”
