Project – Princes House, Kingsway

Client – Eastern & Oriental Berhad

Value - Confidential

A Lucas fit out team acting as principal contractor took full responsibility for the management and delivery of an important fit out and finishing development at Princes House, Kingsway between Holborn and the Strand in Central London.

This grand 1920s neo-classical building was occupied on levels 5-7 with existing apartments. The team undertook a soft strip out of the basement and remaining floors and reconfigured the spaces to create 54 high end serviced apartments consisting of studio and one bedroom accommodation, along with a beautifully constructed reception and concierge area.

We carried out a full evaluation of the condition of existing plant, appointed architects and finalised the design and build plans with the client, Eastern & Oriental Berhad, the Malaysian property development group.

We completed all the mechanical and electrical installations, installed underfloor heating, new kitchens and bathrooms and carried out a full decorations and finishing package.

The project was logistically challenging with Princes House located on a central London red route which has comprehensive access restrictions. We also appointed a tenant liaison manager who ensured our team kept dust and noise down to a minimum and existing tenants fully informed of progress during the development.

A super fit out project successfully completed to a demanding schedule with existing tenants in situ.
