Acre House Commercial & Office Development, Covent Garden, London

This project for Gannon Homes involved the complete refurbishment of this turn of the century building located in the heart of Covent Garden.

The logistical challenges were immense given the city centre location with all demolition works and heavy construction works being microplanned to ensure maximum efficiency on site whilst avoiding any possible disruption to the general public or neighbours. We employed silent construction techniques where possible to avoid noise or vibration pollution and have been complimented on this approach by our client and by the Considerate Contractors Scheme. The roof of the building was raised and the pitch changed in order to provide more usable space. The basement and ground floor slabs were lowered and the entire facade was cleaned and repaired. Extensive temporary works were required and the finished development will provide 11 no extremely high specification large apartments along with approximately 10,000 sq ft of retail space.
