The interior design led CAT B fit-out means that the services deviated significantly from the intention of the CAT A design, which had predetermined openings in the structure. The ceiling design consists of a number of rafts (in fabric/leather/metal finishes) with integrated lighting, and fan coil units concealed behind the rafts, alongside large exposed areas. As a result consideration was given to arranging exposed services neatly whilst utilising the existing services openings in the structure, whilst still coordinating with interspersed rafts.
Full design of CAT B MEPH services, including four-pipe fan coil units and high efficiency LED lighting.

This exciting development involves a £4M CAT B fit-out in parallel with base-build construction of a 125,00 ft² office space for an owner developer occupier.
The Architectural rework replaces the North-East corner of Hanover Square with two distinctive components – office and residential – that are separated above ground but share basement facilities. Our commission, the office portion, features square symmetry, repeating vertical windows, and a Portland stone facade in keeping with those of other Mayfair buildings.
Working and interfacing with MACE (Base Build Contractor) and COMO (CAT B fit-out Contractor), Gratte Brothers (MEPH Services Contractors for both Base Build and CAT B fit-out), alongside Morey-Smith Architects.
