Challenges:

  • Complex geometrically shaped apertures
  • Very design intensive due to the numerous glazing elements and complex geometrical shapes
  • Limited storage and access as space was confined to working in what is essentially a courtyard space.
  • 400kg glass panes glazed by tower crane for 90:90 fire rated curtain wall
  • Coordinating brickwork arches by generating templates for the apertures were within tight tolerance.
  • Logistically challenging location, located on a tight and sensitive area of London on the corner of Pall Mall and St James Place, and opposite St James’s Palace.

Overview:

The project is located in the St James’s Conservation Area within the Westminster on a very tight and sensitive urban site at the corner of Pall Mall and St James.   It is surrounded on three sides by four Grade II* listed buildings so great care had to be taken during the construction process.

The building is effectively split into two distinct parts. At Ground floor and above the scheme provides approx. 9000sq. ft of lettable office floor space whilst below ground level the new and refurbished basements extend BB&R’s existing Hospitality and Wine School facilities.
