Maximising value through modernisation

The challenge

This commercial office building was one of the first constructed in 1989 at Stockley Park, a pioneering development just five minutes from Heathrow Airport. With a view to reordering, maximising and modernising the space, the task was to optimise internal circulation, natural light penetration and the lettable area - always with a focus on sustainability and efficiency - in order to prepare the building for marketing.

The approach

The front and rear elevations were enhanced by a dramatic new curved glass atrium that acts as a central hub. Alongside its revitalised aesthetic, this space incorporates solar shading and natural cooling. On the south and west-facing elevations, we introduced brise soleil treatments to deflect sunlight, enhancing internal comfort.

We created a further range of features including a stand-alone shower block, a cycle park and recycling facilities. The outdoor space was transformed with a new pond, landscaping and breakout area to encourage full use for work and relaxation.

The results

Following the redevelopment, this DDAcompliant, 7,200m² site was let to tenants ‘off plan,’ helping the client get the premises back on the market and maximise the desired asset value. Our sustainability focus achieved the building a BREEAM rating of “Very Good.”
