Sector Office Remodel & Extension

Client Stanhope (Low Carbon Workplace)

Architect Studio Architects, London

Working on behalf Low Carbon Workplace (a unique partnership between Threadneedle Investments, The Carbon Trust and Stanhope), Astudio’s proposed works included the redevelopment of the existing Summit House office building, as well as the adjacent Grade II listed No. 46 Worship Street, which in total comprises of 80,000 sq ft gross internal floorspace.

Added Value

The works included the stripping out of existing 1980’s office space, demolition of the existing roof accommodation, as well as remodelling of the existing steel framed building. The plans also proposed the erection of a two storey steel framed rooftop extension and the rationalisation of the entrance level and cores to bring more value to the building. We have worked with Stanhope on many of the LCW projects and as part of the team we work well to achieve Stanhope’s goals.

Additional Comments

The office space has been fitted out to meet the demands of Technology, Media & Telecoms (TMT) occupiers in the local area.  A proportion of the building is for affordable offices aimed at start-up businesses.
