RMF were delighted to have been the sole raised flooring contractor on the refurbishment of 16 East Cheap, London.
The building is positioned within the Eastcheap Conservation Area so the fit out involved remodelling much of the façade to keep in character with the surrounding buildings and features. The Portland stone façade has been adapted and curtain walling windows installed to improve the ground floor for retail use and to better engage with the street.
Behind its striking original Portland stone façade, the works included a stunning new entrance, remodelled reception area and premium workspace throughout.
The ground and lower ground floor were converted to accommodate retail and leisure use. The basement was reconfigured to form amenity space for the offices, providing bicycle storage and high quality changing and shower facilities. This was achieved by subdividing the floor spaces into the landlord’s plant space and areas to for the shower, cycle and changing room amenities, inclusive of new services.
The project was also completed throughout the pandemic illustrating RMF’s ability to adapt and work in tandem with the main contractor to achieve both safe working and a project delivered in line with programme.
The project was a finalist in the Architects’ Journal #Retrofit Awards last week within the Workplace £5 - £10m category. The project may not have won but it was a fantastic effort from all the team and it shows the amazing quality of the fit out.
RMF supplied and installed 3,000m² of new medium grade raised floor panels throughout all office areas.
