Willmott Dixon Interiors has followed up its recent £20 million contract win to fit out the Design Museum’s new home in Kensington with a £20 million contract for Network Rail’s offices near Blackfriars Station.
Willmott Dixon’s interiors specialists will refurbish the six storey 1 Puddle Dock to create a new home in central London for nearly 400 Network Rail staff.
The 100,000 sq ft modernisation and refit includes Cat A fit out for space to Sub Let and fit out of Network Rail’s office areas to Cat B standard along with new M&E installations, lift installations, windows and external doors.
Working alongside Willmott Dixon Interiors are Scott Brownrigg, EPR Architects, Parsons Brinckerhoff, Watermans as structural engineer and Sweett Group, who provided quantity surveying, project management, CDM-Designer and sustainability services, with the project set for completion in summer 2016.
Willmott Dixon Interiors chief operating officer Mike Hart says, “We’re delighted to have been chosen by Network Rail to fit out their new central London offices.
“The location and fast-track nature of the project further highlights our expertise in delivering large-scale office refurbishment in busy urban sites that provide modern space for a variety of uses.”
It’s another major project in 2015 for the company that fits-out over 500,000ft² of space each year in key sectors such as commercial, hotels, health, leisure and education.
