1-2 Finsbury Square, London – project 2
Architect: GPAD London
Type of Project: 4th floor Cat A+, 5th and 7th Cat A
Contract Type: JCT Traditional Project Value: £3m
Curo Construction completed Phase 2 fit-out works at the prestigious No 1-2 Finsbury Square site, continuing our successful partnership with both the client and estates teams.
1-2 Finsbury Square has an open ground floor colonnade and reception areas. The floors are column free and provide a flexible space with views over Finsbury Square.
The fit out (over 3 floors plus a basement area) is predominantly open plan (set out to accommodate 70 desks) with multiple meeting rooms, breakout areas and kitchenette.
Positioned on the south west corner of Finsbury Square, the building had a challenging logistics element as well as a fast paced programme due to a number of design changes.
The basement works comprised of 2 store rooms being re-modelled into a ladies and a gents showers and locker areas, each have 3 fully tiled luxury shower rooms with hotel quality shower mixers. To allow for the removal of drainage water the team had to introduce a 400mm raised access floor to allow for drainage runs and a pump system to allow for the removal to a main sewer. These floors were also fully tiled with a 600mm2 charcoal tile and fully fitted with state of the art lockers with a luxury wood grained veneer finish.
