Task: Installation was carried out without the use of a tower crane meaning many of the larger steels had to be spliced or site welded. Splice designs were by Crofton.

- Project value: £9.5m
- Refurb, steelwork & metalwork
- Crofton contract value: £405k

The refurbished building is now a benchmark office development on one of London’s premier thoroughfares.
As well as supplying and erecting steelwork for the structural alterations (which were installed without the use of a tower crane) we also supplied various balustrades and the striking cruciform columns that support the two front entrance canopies. These were fabricated from 35mm thick solid stainless steel, fully welded and then mirror polished.
Crofton Engineering played a major role in this stunning refurbishment which skilfully joined and transformed two existing dilapidated 1980’s office blocks into a modern open plan high specification commercial development.
The project required extensive structural alterations, starting with the removal of the facades to expose the original reinforced concrete frame. The existing frames were then linked by a steel framework over a live mews road creating four extended floors to one of the buildings; the other was extended at the rear creating six extended floor plates.
