Project details

In the heart of Soho, London WC2, 127 Charing Cross Road is poised for a transformative journey. Once a product of the 1970s, this building is set to undergo a mixed-use refurbishment, breathing new life into its structure and adding approximately 40% more mass to the site.

Currently a dynamic hub, the existing building boasts retail, leisure, and office spaces across its five floors. Notably, it houses two evening entertainment venues, a rarity with coveted late licenses. The upcoming refurbishment promises a fusion of modern functionality and the preservation of its vibrant, eclectic character.

Scope of works

  • extensive temporary works
  • removal of existing façade and demolition down to 4th floor level
  • demolition of main core down to and including basement slab
  • installation of new RC core to level 8
  • installation of new steel frame to level 8
  • installation of composite decking and concrete placement to level 8
  • providing design and installation of the structural steel frame including steel-to-steel connections, precast stairs design, steel-to-concrete connections, and below-ground drainage.

Project constraints

  • basement nightclub area (ground floor G-A-Y nightclub to remain operational throughout construction activities)
  • working around live services
  • carrying out demolition adjacent to live theatres.
