Garnett & Partners
Collins has completed the refurbishment to 390 Strand in Charing Cross on behalf of Legal & General, which will be the newest addition to their Capsule workspaces. These workspaces aim to offer quality spaces to tenants within well placed buildings.
The refurbishment involved working with Garnett & Partners to re-position the ‘Brutalist’ style 1970’s building into approximately 6,700 ft2 of high quality, modern office space. The building now offers tenants private space across multiple floors that will be fully fitted, furnished and ready to occupy. Collins reconfigured the floor space so that the six floors are now arranged to accommodate 8 to 20 workstations per floor.
Each floor benefits from its own demised WCs, a kitchenette, soft seating and agile working areas. The building also benefits from a new secure cycle storage and shower facility. As part of the refurbishment, Collins also installed a new vertical transport lift from ground to sixth floor, as well as upgrading the façade and services throughout.
Works also included the refurbishment of the reception area, a new ground to first floor staircase, the renovation of the entrance façade, new toilets and exposed services to the main office floor.
