The City of London Corporation (the City) invites Tenders for the provision of Architectural Services for the project which is 23 Finsbury Circus, a Grade II listed office building comprising 26,000 sq. ft and situated opposite the new Liverpool Street Crossrail entrance. It adjoins the 1-5 London Wall buildings, which freehold interest is held by the City Corporation as Trustee of Bridge House Estates. The proposed refurbishment of 23 Finsbury Circus warrants an innovative and exciting commercial scheme, which capitalises on the high-profile location and site exposure. The scheme needs to improve the building quality, marketability and sustainability by attracting premium occupiers and an enhanced rental profile. It requires innovative design and building solutions that are cost effective yet deliverable considering the limited timeframe until vacant possession is achieved. Following a feasibility study, the analysis of the options has demonstrated that a refurbishment of the existing building is the preferred option that the City of London would like to move forward with. The project's agreed scope is the refurbishment of the building with full replacement of services to create building with Net Internal Area of 25,984 sq. ft. Basement, ground + 6 upper floors. The scope also included and not limited and not limited to: - Refurbishment of building - Replacement of all services - Retention of central circulation core - Works to basement to include end of journey facilities - Reconfiguration of ground floor reception and retail units - Works to reduce running costs - New roof terrace In order to develop the strategy for 23 Finsbury Circus, it is necessary to consider the potential feasibility options available to the City (RIBA Stage 1). To support the viability of this project, the scheme will need to maximise net internal area and value add opportunities through: The building still has tenants occupying some floors and once work starts to progress design options, notice will be served.
