CGA completed the fit out of 10,000 sq ft at a property in Dean Farrar Street for developer and asset manager Cordea Savills. The works at Dean Farrar Street involved the full strip out of existing finishes and services including redundant perimeter heating to maximise the available floor space. 75mm of the existing screed was hacked up and carted away to help maximise the floor to ceiling height to achieve the client specification of a 2.4m floor to ceiling height whilst at the same time installing a MOB raised access floor.

New slim line Mitsubishi FCU’s were installed and associated plant, new fresh air and ventilation ductwork was also installed. New light fittings and controls were installed with PIR detectors, along with new distribution boards and cleaners sockets where required. A new SAS system 330 metal tiled ceiling was installed along with perimeter bulkheads, fire breaks etc. Low level walls were installed under the windows to help increase the areas thermal capacity.


The existing brown metal windows were sprayed white to help complement the bright environment created. New Venetian window blinds were also installed as part of the finishes. New double 1 hour veneered fi re doors were installed to the core area. The building was located adjacent to St James Square Station and New Scotland Yard. These adjacent floors were occupied by the Metropolitan Police and required careful consideration and planning to avoid logistics issues.

During the works, Student demonstrations took place causing considerable problems including lock downs, which stopped egress and access. We managed to absorb this disturbance within the client’s programme. Following successful completion, CGA were awarded the enabling works contract including the full strip out of 45,000 sq ft including all architectural finishes, mechanical and electrical items and roof and basement mounted plant at 90 Chancery Lane.
