ISG has been awarded a £12.4 million fast-track project to refurbish a prominent office building on Whitechapel High Street for Derwent London.
The former RBS office will be extensively remodelled internally to provide 200,000 ft² of high-specification Cat A space, including provision of a new entrance and open plan reception area.
Stuart Deverill, ISG’s Southern regional managing director, commented:
“This latest win reinforces our market leading position in complex office refurbishment and fit out, and we’re delighted to be working with Derwent London to maximise the value of this key property asset.”
The eight-storey building in London’s fast-growing Tech Belt area will be systematically stripped out, enabling ISG to reconfigure the ground floor space and seven levels of office accommodation.
ISG will carry out structural alterations at ground floor level to create a spacious and contemporary reception with open plan break out areas, informal meeting space and new retail units. A feature entrance with a new steel portal is set to enhance the building’s visual appeal.
The project includes the upgrade of mechanical and electrical infrastructure and the installation of new generators to ensure resilience for new tenants.
