Following a recommendation by quantity surveyors Exigere, Dorrington appointed Ashfold to act as Project Manager and Contract Administrator.
Working with Henley HaleBrown Architects, property developer Dorrington will transform a former furrier in North London into characterful Cat A office spaces.
Structural interventions will be limited, and instead the focus of this refurbishment will be on celebrating the building’s original architectural features while capitalising on the natural light and spectacular views its location provides. The interior will be reorganised to provide a variety of flexible working spaces, and lifts will be replaced to improve accessibility. New roof mounted HVAC equipment and additional insulation will improve the building’s overall environmental performance.
Taking advantage of excellent transport links and the need for local commercial and office provision, Dorrington aim for Bellside House to provide an attractive alternative to Central London working.
