By King & Godfree Friday April 14, 2017 See More —
Okay, it doesn’t look like much now. But in a few months, this is going to be a sunlight-filled office – and it’s available to lease.

Renovating an entire building is not a small job. A great deal of deconstruction work has to get done before any new structural activity can start. Deconstruction is essentially “construction in reverse”. We approached this stage carefully, separating materials like the glass that we intend to re-use later.
