Buckingham Palace Rd, SW1

This negotiated project involved the separation and conversion of the front and rear of this impressive and historic building located close to Buckingham Palace.

The structural remodelling of the building included new staircases, lifts and M&E services, along with Cat B specification and a high level of finishes.

Externally the existing facades have been refurbished with the installation of some replacement windows and doors.  New windows openings have been created to the west and north courtyard elevations, and at fifth floor level to Palace Place.

The front wing on Buckingham Palace Road has been refurbished to provide a new contemporary headquarters for The Girlguiding Association, and continues their presence on this site.  The new facility incorporates offices and meeting rooms, together with space for their members as well as a shop selling Guiding merchandise.

The rear wing on Palace Place has been converted to provide a fully fitted-out 73 bedroom hotel from the lower ground to fifth floor level, for the luxury boutique hotel provider, The Nadler.  This hotel follows two previously built for the hotel operator by Blenheim House Construction, Seel House Hotel in Liverpool, and the flagship Nadler Hotel in Soho.

Internally the hotel has been fully fitted out to a very high standard to provide the operator with a four star product to add to their existing portfolio of stylishly designed hotels.
