Scope of Project:
Rainscreen Cladding to New Office Development

Located in the heart of the City, Monument Place previously known as Centurion House, was originally built in the 1980'€™s. Consisting of 61,000 square feet of outdated office space.

Rockspring purchased the property for demolition and reconstruction for £22 million. The target for the project was to increase the net lettable area by a third, improve the space to Grade A office accommodation, add two new ground shops and achieve a BREEAM '€˜Excellent'€™ rating.

The new scheme was designed by David Walker Architects with the building being clad in Portland stone, incorporating full height windows framed by a pale exterior and a double height entrance hall. Portland Jordans Basebed and Grove Whitbed was decided to add to the building's sense of history.
