77 Leadenhall Street Client: Harbert Management Corp. Location: City of London Floor area: 3,250sqm Project Value: ÂŁ1.6m (ÂŁ492/sqm) Date: Completed January 2005 Earle Architects completed the refurbishment of a 7 storey office building for Harbert Management Corporation in 2005. Originally built in the 1980s the building suffered from poor access to the raised ground floor and low performance glazing. We prepared designs to lower the ground floor slab to enable level access to a new retail unit at ground floor level straight off of the street. This unit was fitted with high performance low-e coated frameless double glazing. The reception, which featured a retained section of the original London wall, was refurbished to a high standard and a new platform lift was installed to enable wheelchair access. The original reception desk was set behind a bomb-proof concrete wall - installed at a time when the threat of an IRA attack was prevalent. We modified this desk to incorporate a new lowered section for wheelchair users and clad the concrete in white corian to soften its appearance. Upstairs, the office spaces were fit out to Cat. A standard.
