Lucas has completed a major fit out at One Angel Court, an important office redevelopment within the Bank Conservation Area in the heart of the city. The building is a 24-storey tower development which provides 300,000 sq ft of quality office accommodation, high level garden terraces, restaurant, retail and public urban spaces.

Installations have included a number of unusual features for the spectacular double height entrance to the building that leads up to the mezzanine floor reception area. We laid porcelain floor tiles in complicated circular patterns and have fitted reinforced glass feature wall cladding and metal acoustic sound-deadening panels.

We installed two bespoke metal steel staircases and balustrades from the ground floor up to the reception, a feature metal screen and balustrade around the mezzanine balcony and trowel applied a special Armour-coated plasterwork and wax polishing it for a special effect.

We also completely fit out basement showers and changing rooms, including all the mechanical and electrical work, and provided decorations and specialist floor finishes to back of house areas on the lower floors as well as fitting out back of house staircases throughout the building.

This has been a joint development between Stanhope and Mitsui Fudosan and the construction manager is Mace. The new building is located less than a minute's walk away from the Bank of England and contains all the facilities needed for entrepreneurs and business people working inside the offices. Additionally, restaurants including Coya, Natural Kitchen and Notes are expected to move into the building.

Elements that make up Angel Court are the Garden Floors and the Sky Floors, roof gardens and terraces and a vibrant new public realm and an astonishing view of the city skyline.
