Our role

We were appointed by Dorrington Estates, the developer, as construction project managers, to manage the development of the design, provide information to the contractor along with the role of contract administrator. We also advised with regards to cost and procurement.

Dorrington Estates encourage a unique way of working and when the project was completed there were several improvements on the original specification.

Their unique style combines the core skills of a good quality designer and the pragmatic approach of the contractor, Open Contracts, who have worked with Dorrington Estates for over ten years.

Project details

This project consists of the refurbishment of 10,000 sq ft of office space in the midtown area of central London. The project aims to refresh a well-used space to create a high quality office space with unique character, in a building that had been occupied historically by traditional tenants.

The building was targeted at tenants who would find the special character appealing. In August 2014 the space was let to Reading Room who were looking to relocate from Soho.
