29-35 Great Portland Street, London
Refurbishment & facade replacement of existing building in Central London to provide high quality speculative office accommodation. The multi-tenant, contemporary, offices shall have exposed fabric and services therefore M & E design needs to carefully co-ordinated with the architects & have high energy efficient performance.
Delta Green initially undertook the thermal modelling working in conjunction with Ben Adams Architects to understand the window design and to minimise overheating within the occupied areas.
The building was provided with air source heat pumps designed to allow for the building to be split into multiple tenancies.
The architect was keen to develop an exposed services solution. As such services and their installation were carefully detailed and co-ordinated.
The design was further complicated by the ground (and basement) retail tenant remaining in occupation throughout the works.
Lighting was very important, with LED lighting being used throughout, linked to daylight dimming controllers and occupant detectors.
Great Portland Street was completed late 2015.
