Refurbishment of London Borough of Hackney council offices completes
Waterman is delighted that the extensive refurbishment of Christopher Addison House, home of the London Borough of Hackney council, is now complete.
The rejuvenated offices accommodate over 400 staff, covering a variety of functions and council services.
Providing a broad range of workplace settings, the remodelled building includes break out spaces, quiet areas, kiosks and conference rooms in addition to public services facilities. The scheme significantly improves the space-efficiency of the building, creating space for additional desks strategically integrated with the new flexible working and collaborative areas.
Waterman Building Services were appointed by project managers Faithful & Gould to design the mechanical and electrical services. Working closely with architects, Bond Bryan, our team coordinated the new works which see the latest air-source heat pump technology implemented for heating and cooling to the offices. This replaces the original systems, substantially cutting carbon emissions and energy consumption. The design also features the latest LED lighting technology, along with presence detection and daylight dimming controls, which reduces lighting electrical consumption by over 50%.
Waterman’s Director of Building Services, Mark Terndrup, said: “Its fantastic to see the refurbishment and fit-out of Christopher Addison House completed and handed over. There has never been a more challenging time to complete a project and everyone on the team really pulled together to help ISG get this over the line. The scheme has transformed a very dated building into a modern, contemporary workplace that will make it a great home for London Borough of Hackney for years to come.”
