Another milestone for Broadwalk House

We are very excited to announce that Broadwalk House has been shortlisted for the AJ Retrofit Awards in the Workplace £5-10m category!

This high impact refurbishment of a 7 storey building on the Broadgate Estate has upcycling and recycling at its core. It  focused on light touch but transformative interventions to the main building entrance and reception, upper floor common areas and WC’s, half of the office floors with the other remaining in occupation through the works, and new occupier facilities in the basement.

Broadwalk House has previously been shortlisted to the NLA Awards under the Conserving category.
