68 South Lambeth Road, SW8
This Cat A office fit-out took us back to South Lambeth Road – this time to number 68 – where the third floor needed significant work to create an attractive space for the area’s office rental market. Our long-term client, who we worked with to deliver other CAT A office fit-outs such as Gough Square and The Coalface wanted a similar look and feel to space we created at 70 South Lambeth Road – the building next door.
The CAT A office fit-out
To achieve a CAT A office fit-out we undertook a complete refurbishment using our team of strip-out specialists and experienced M&E engineers. Prefabricated wall mounted steel cabinets were chosen to house the AC units instead of the often-used M&E technique of installing a ceiling-mounted system. And the raised floor we installed made this space ready for any prospective tenant to simply “plug and play”.
In addition to this more standard CAT A office fit-out works, we laid a stunning herringbone design timber floor that gives the space a unique charm. We also enhanced many original features of the building – we sandblasted the previously plastered walls to expose the concrete and sprayed the exposed steel beams black to create the industrial look and feel our client wanted. Stylish WCs and tea point facilities incorporating high-end products such as black matt taps and accessories were installed, also added to the overall industrial effect.

During the project, our client found a tenant who wanted to occupy the third floor of both numbers 68 and 70, so we removed the adjoining wall between the spaces to create a striking open-plan floor that spans the two buildings.”Open
During the project, our client found a tenant who wanted to occupy the third floor of both numbers 68 and 70, so we removed the adjoining wall between the spaces to create a striking open-plan floor that spans the two buildings. Externally, we installed two gantries to facilitate safe working on the roof plant areas and extended the AC provision.
As one of many successful projects we’ve completed in South Lambeth Road for the same client, number 68 offers an excellent example of how our collaborative approach enables us to achieve results that everyone is delighted with. Other CAT A office fit-out projects we created in the past were 1st floor Harbour Exchange and Forbury Court.
