There’s nothing quite like an opening night… the first pop of a champagne cork, the cutting of a red ribbon, the first new client standing at a reception desk, or the very first key being turned in a new or repurposed office building. Architects and designers design the most wonderful, unique spaces for their clients and it’s our job, as main contractor, to bring their vision to life
Over the last year or so we’ve been working on a wide range of projects, from sumptuous restaurants like Scott’s Richmond and The Aubrey in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, to Salt Bae’s high profile Nusr-Et and Joey Ghazal’s glamorous The Maine.
The redevelopment of the iconic Grade II Listed Bromley Town Hall to create flexible Clockwise coworker office spaces and a quirky 24-bed boutique hotel is drawing to a close. It is one of Castleforge’s many redevelopment sites across the country and it’s been a pleasure to work on this lovely old building, restoring every last brick, molding, wood panel and period feature. In some of the oldest parts of the building the wood panelling and flooring were in an extremely poor condition, so we had to replace, the trick was to make the new wood indistinguishable from the old.
We have had a big hand in developing The Outernet experience at Tottenham Court Road, building two entertainment venues and delivered a small music bar, The Lower Third, on Denmark Street on time, when nobody thought we could!
Then, on the sixth floor of the same building, the amazing Tattu Restaurant which lead to a lovely testimonial from Tattu’s Adam Jones, “I experienced the finished restaurant last night for the first time and it is truly breath-taking. Thank you very much for your hard work and dedication, I recognise the mammoth achievement of delivering this to programme in this climate and I know the sacrifices that have been made to get there. A huge thank you to you all for building what I believe is one of the most incredible fit outs in the world.”
The Origin Restaurant at The Royal Garden Hotel is a study in cool, stylish woodwork. Swingers West End expansion – our third project for the brand – and what fun! Chambers Private Members Club and TH@51 at The Taj Hotel, St James’ – Din Tai Fung Selfridges – Mimi Mei Fair – JiJi Kitchen, Islington. We cannot list or show all here.
Our aim is always to maintain good working relationships with the client and the whole Project Team. We have an open, honest approach to business and understand the benefits of collaboration and planning early on in the project, and, of course, attention to detail. Much of our business is repeat business, we think that says a lot. We’re happy to discuss negotiated or tendered projects from £500,000 to £15m.
