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 façades were refurbished with the installation of some replacement windows and doors. New window openings were created to the west and north courtyard elevations, and at fifth floor level to Palace Place.

The rear wing on Palace Place was 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 BHC; Seel House Hotel in Liverpool, and the flagship Nadler Hotel in Soho.

Internally, the hotel was 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.

The front wing on Buckingham Palace Road was refurbished to provide a new contemporary headquarters for The Girlguiding Association.
