Scottish Widow Fund & Life Assurance Society

Main Contractor:

HBG Construction

Completion Date:

2000

Portland Stone:

Bowers Basebed

Scope of Project:

Traditional Cladding

The project comprised a large office development of approximately 16,660 square meters of office floor space arranged over seven storeys.

Situated in the business centre of London in one of the London Borough of Camden’€™s conservation areas, Finsbury Square utilized the traditional Portland Stone element of the surrounding buildings and combined it with contemporary design practices.

Careful consideration had to be given to an existing 1920’€™s façade which was a listed building. However, Planning Permission was granted or the demolition of the existing building and the resurrection of a new prestigious 7-storey office building with a grand atrium designed by Eric Parry Architects.

Full sized mock-up columns were tested at the BRE’€™s Garston testing laboratory to ensure the quality of the manufacture for this project.
