Sutton Yard, Clerkenwell, London
The building was originally constructed during the early 1960’s and provided mixed use multiple occupant accommodation for the local, mostly trade based businesses. The past decade has seen a transformation to the local business population as a number of creative and design based companies have gravitated towards the Clerkenwell area and this has accelerated more recently as the new local Crossrail Station at Farringdon nears completion. The ambitious and extensive scheme has included the complete refurbishment of the original building plus the construction of an additional 15,000ft2 of new build space to provide a total of circa 75,000ft2 of modern highly efficient office accommodation. Bespoke LED lighting developed specifically for the project together with the latest generation of high efficiency Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) heating and cooling has contributed to an ‘A’ EPC Rating for the office space compared to an ‘E’ for the original accommodation. As might be expected, given the locale, the building is equipped with exposed visible services which have been carefully coordinated with the project Architect (Archer Architects) to provide an uncluttered and ordered layout.
