Great Guildford Street Completes Thursday 17 May

We’re very happy to see our recent commercial, fit-out project in the London Bridge area reach completion this week.

The ex-industrial Victorian building, a stones throw from London’s Borough Market, has been reconfigured and refurbished to provide office spaces for our client at the upper level, in addition to lettable space, at ground floor, and shared meeting rooms to basement level. This has included the insertion of a new, bespoke designed, steel-staircase and a series of glazed screens to better access and delineate spaces as well as the provision of new kitchen, bathroom and ancillary space.

Further information will be coming to our project page soon!
