Skanska land major £30m office refurbishment deal

Skanska land a deal that will include large-scale refurbishment of the entire building.

The refurbished building will offer an extra 1,000 square feet of office space.

Construction company Skanska has landed a major £30 office refurbishment contract at Finsbury Circus house, near Liverpool Street station, London.

The Hamburg-based firm Union investment Real Estate , the owner of Finsbury Circus House, appointed City project managers Core to handle the upgrade scheme on its behalf.

Union Investment Real Estate’s Dr Karl-Joseph Hermanns- Engel said: “The  current market cycle in London provides an almost perfect opportunity for this type of  reconstruction in prime locations.

Repositioning our property will enable us to meet the high demand for energy-efficient core properties in the financial district.”

Initial works at the site will include the demolition of the ground floor slab, together with structural alteration to the existing eight-storey office building.

Furthermore, during the reconstruction process, Skanska will build an additional roof top floor which will provide more than 1,000 square feet of fully serviced office space.

The company’s team will also install mechanical and electrical services throughout, as well as high -quality toilets, a reception area and six new passenger lifts.

Paul Heather, managing director of Skanska’s south east building arm said: “The award of this contract demonstrates our capability to  develop the range of projects we undertake, and deliver value solutions to our clients.

We have worked with both Union Investments and Core on previous schemes in  London and I am delighted that we will be continuing to build upon our successful  relationship at Finsbury Circus House.”

The architect for the scheme is Fletcher Priest and work will start on the site immediately with completion expected for January 2013.
