The refurbishment of two incredible atria was carried out while staff in the building worked on.
Though it sits above Charing Cross Station, even most Londoners don’t know about the architectural wonder that is One Embankment Place. When the architect TP Bennett and contractor Overbury went in to fit out new interiors, they called on us to provide the glazing for two incredible atria.
The vision was to have open spaces on each floor linking the building’s north and south atria, allowing natural light to spread throughout the work areas. The tricky part, however, was that the major accountancy firm occupying the building wanted to carry on work as normal while the refit was being done.

For this process to run smoothly, we designed and ordered the glass and white spandrel panels in advance so they could be installed in modular fashion. A scaffold was erected within the atria up to level five, with staff moving to the lower portion of the building during the refit. Once the top half was completed, employees moved back upstairs, and we finished the bottom sections of the atria.
