The Challenge

Picton required assistance in the repair and refurbishment of the fourth and fifth floors of 1 Chancery Lane, a prestigious office building within the City of London. The challenge Picton faced was improving the overall working environment for occupiers, to ensure they signed further leases.

The Solution

Improvement to the working environment was achieved through the repair and refurbishment of common parts, the installation of full air conditioning and a Cat A refurbishment to the fourth and fifth floors. The works included full M&E design and installation which was completed by our in-house building services team. CS2 managed the works to ensure minimal disruption to the working hours of the first to third floors, which remained occupied throughout the project. The quality of the refurbishment and the improvements to the working environment within the building persuaded the occupants of floors 1-3 to sign a further 10 year lease. Energy running costs were reduced by 45-50% and maintenance costs by 55%
