Our own development, The Works project sought to transform an abandoned industrial warehouse complex into a one-of-a-kind mixed-use retail and upscale commercial office complex.

The programme included the demolition of the former facility, whilst keeping the structural steel skeleton in place to serve as a framework, around which, the imaginative design included extensive use of glass. After removing the cladding and carefully severing the existing steel columns, we brought in specialty gear to lift the existing structure. Lifting the roof allowed for unique and flexible two-level fit outs for tenants.

Another interesting aspect to this build was a focus on future proofing that called for solar roof panels and electric car sockets.
