Grade A office refurbishment

Columbia Threadneedle

Abbey View was an underperforming asset which didn’t capitalise on the potential of the site. TFT acted as Project Manager and Lead Consultant for the refurbishment of this dated office building, creating expanded views over St Albans.

The refurbishment provides 27,000 sq ft of office space which includes extending out the third floor to create additional office space which maximized views up to the Abbey.

Sustainability was a major consideration for this refurbishment which saw the EPC rating raised to a C. New low-energy light fittings and VRV air conditioning were installed as well as charging points for electric vehicles. Cyclists have been catered for with the installation of new facilities including secure cycle storage, new showers and changing rooms.

The works have brought a tired building up to date, creating an improved external space, a bright modern interior design, and better working environment for the building users.
