We developed proposals and supported the successful planning application for the comprehensive refurbishment of an existing office building at 120 The Broadway, Wimbledon. The building comprises circa. 70,000 sqft of office and ancillary accommodation above a Sainsbury’s supermarket and is located within the central area of Wimbledon Town Centre.
The building is owned by M&G Real Estate who’s brief is to bring the building up to current technical standards and improve the quality of accommodation and the amenity value of the commercial space. Workspace culture has undergone a transformation since this building was constructed in 2007 and, as a result, the existing facility provides poor quality and unsustainable accommodation and is partially vacant. Our proposals seek to address these issues and provide an exemplar new workplace in this important town centre location.
Our design included the creation of a new reception and workspace at ground floor, the complete replacement of all M&E installations within the building, and the creation of state-of-the-art occupier facilities including new showers and changing rooms. We also extend the building at the existing fifth floor level to create a new communal roof terrace. On the ground floor, we reconfigured the buildings entrance, providing a new independent commercial entrance. New doors and glazing were installed to the ground floor reception space and breakout spaces, providing activity and vibrancy, as well as function, to the street frontage of the building, where little exists at previously. A new vertical signage fascia provides identity from the town centre.
The project completed in 2021.
