Conversion and extension of the existing office building into 54 luxury residential apartments, ranging from oversized studios to four duplex penthouses. The 57,000 sq ft building has been vertically extended by up to six additional storeys, totalling 74,000 sq ft as retail and banking units continue to occupy the ground floor.
The office to residential conversion at 55 Victoria Street has transformed the outdated 1980’s building into high-class New York style loft apartments, making use of the 2.9 m floor to ceiling heights. The site offers a prime location for residents, as it sits opposite New Scotland Yard and previously housed the offices of the Secretary of State for Transport.
We provided project management and employer’s agent services. We assisted the client in managing the procurement of the contractor, construction and project completion. Additionally, we were responsible for administering the contract between the client and the appointed contractor, advising of any changes to the contract, acting as the link between the client’s design team and the contractor when necessary and collation of monthly reporting from the contractor and quantity surveyor.
55 Victoria Street posed many significant engineering challenges for the team at Mason Navarro Pledge, including the reconfiguration of the stability system, load increase justification, extensions with complex interface issues and a new façade designed by Stiff and Trevillion Architects.
