Introduction

ISG completed the redevelopment of Alderman’s House, situated close to one of London’s busiest train stations, Liverpool Street station. This was ISG’s second project for Lord Alan Sugar’s real estate company, Amsprop, following the earlier transformation of 5 Cheapside, which overlooks St Paul’s Cathedral.

The project

The complex scheme began with the strip out and demolition of a six-storey brick-clad concrete building, and the adjacent four-storey brick and timber retail and residential building, whose facade was retained. A striking new eight-storey concrete-framed oval-shaped office tower was constructed, incorporating curved sandstone and Portland stone to its façade.

The team also completed the Cat A fit out to nine floors of new office space with polished concrete floors in the main core area, four new lifts and a concrete finished desk within the new main reception area.

Alderman’s House has a rich history, some of which was uncovered during the redevelopment, several fourth-century skeletons were recovered from the site over a four-month planned excavation by archaeologists.
