90 Bartholomew Close, London EC1A
PROJECT BASICS: JCT Minor Works
The redevelopment of 90 Bartholomew Close was completed in May 2018. Originally a linoleum and carpet warehouse and showroom, the building has undergone a comprehensive refurbishment with two additional floors. The building now provides 24,000 sq ft of high-quality office space and an all-day bar and restaurant on the ground and lower ground floors. The brief was to design and build a fully fitted office; a contemporary, appealing environment in keeping with the newly refurbished building, ready for a prospective tenant.
