Project Update - Progress

Working with Collins Construction Ltd, TTSP have been developing the design on this imposing building in the heart of the theatre district. The intent by the client has been to undertake a sympathetic and careful refurbishment, making energy improvements wherever possible.

The fabric of the building needed upgrading to achieve EPC improvements. Works have included stripping back the slate roof and fully insulating (including flat roofs).

On the main façade, with each large window flanked by 2 smaller windows that are separated by concrete columns, that preseted a challenge. Weighing up the extensive works required to remove the existing cavity insulation and reinstate new insulation it was agreed to line/insulate the internal façade and keep the existing insulation in-situ whilst applying the appropriate level of firestopping between window openings and party walls. Windows were replaced all around greatly improving both the appearance and thermal performance of the building.

The project is expected to achieve an EPC rating increase from D to A and BREEAM Refurbishment Fit Out Pre-assessment Excellent.

With the hoarding now down, the new front entrance can be seen for the first time and with light flooding the space, you can really see it beginning to take shape. Watch this space for more updates.
