20 WOOD STREET
Project: 20 Wood Street, Barnet, EN5 4BJ
Client: William Boyes Solicitors
Architect: Hadley Design Associates
Timeframe: 22 Weeks
To subdivide a grade II listed office into two new autonomous parts – bringing the building up to the standards of a modern work space while remaining sympathetic to its 16th century roots. All of this had to be done while the clients continued to use the site as their base.
Our site team built an excellent working relationship with William Boyes, allowing us to add value to their property whilst they continued delivering for their clients.
How we did it:
As the building – which was originally built with salvaged ship timbers – had not been worked on since repairs to bomb damage during WWII, our renovations had to be extensive. Despite the restricted space and the site’s location on a busy bus route, new services, air conditioning, extensions and landscaping were all carried out with a minimum of disruption.
