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Place previously known as Centurion House, was originally built in the 1980's. Consisting of 61,000 square feet of outdated office space.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