Old Admiralty Building
Transforming a London landmark into the DfE's new head office
Our Interiors company carried out the refit of 1895-built Bridge House on 181 Queen Victoria Street to provide Grade A office space.
The complex refit of the six-storey building to full CAT A standard now provides excellent office space adjacent to Blackfriars station in one of London's most transformed areas.
Our project included the strip-out
of existing floor plates to provide open plan office space, increasing the available
area from 2050m2 to 2339m2. New lifts were fitted and all windows and shop
fronts replaced to all elevations as well as a full repair and repaint to
existing façade, rejuvenating the building back to its former glory.
Procured via the Scape Major Works Framework, the project was awarded Gold by the Considerate Constructors Scheme which is the highest level and recognised that the requirements of the Code of Good Practice have been consistently exceeded.
Carolyn Dwyer, director of the built environment for the City of London said the award “reflects a spirit of pride, an awareness of the needs of the passing public and regard for the surrounding environment.”

The project follows a host of successes in the commercial
sector for our Interiors team, such as One Puddle Dock the 100,000 sq ft Cat A
fit-out of office space adjacent to Blackfriars train station for Network Rail
and the prestigious refurbishment of the Old Admiralty Building (below) where our team
are transforming 23,000m² of space in the iconic building into a modern working
environment for the Department of Education.
Graham Shaw, managing director of Willmott Dixon Interiors:
“We are very proud of the work carried out at Bridge House, having received a Gold CCS award is outstanding and we hope demonstrates our commitment to exceeding expectations in this area. It is a pleasure to transform a historic building such as this in to a modern office space where businesses and people can thrive.”
