Scope of Project:
Putney & Wood
New Bond Street is one of London's most prestigious shopping districts and the lower level retail premises are currently occupied by the world renowned Italian fashion house of Prada. Located within Westminster's Conservation Area in the heart of the Central London, this modern eight storey office and retail development was designed by Rolfe Judd for PRUPIM.
The scheme provides 17,500 sq ft of Cat A office space over the upper six storey's and 4,000 sq ft of prime retail space to the ground and basement levels.
The stonework package included Portland Stone cladding externally and Portland Stone wall linings in the reception.
Internally the structure is unable to support the weight of 75mm thick Portland stone, so we sourced lightweight, honeycomb-backed, panels which were used for the internal soffits and fascias. To ensure safe installation of the panels, a running beam was erected to support the stones while they were maneuvered into position.
