Pillsbury Law, London
Client: Pillsbury Law
Architect: TP Bennett
25 Old Broad Street, better known as tower 42 is an existing 47 Storey Tower constructed in the early 1980’s and located within the City of London.
Pillsbury law originally occupied 15000sqft of office space located on level 23 of 25 Old Broad Street and took an 5000sqft on level 21 to create a new client facing meeting space and executive reception area. The scope also involves the refurbishment of 5000sqft on level 23 to create new cellular offices for the office partners.
The works comprised the complete removal and strip-out of all the MEP services. The electrical services were taken back to the main landlord risers and modification of the existing on floor mechanical plant to suite the architectural proposals. The building was fully occupied on the remaining floors throughout the duration of the works and required close liaison and detailed negotiations with the landlord and existing tenants throughout the works regarding the existing basebuild services and systems
Level 21 comprised a main reception and client facing meeting rooms. The main meeting room being provided with a “Skyfold” partition to provide space from 20 to 40 persons seated and 70 standing. The remaining floors are given over to provide cellular spaces as well as a dedicated IT/AV equipment room.
