The project comprises of the connection of an existing outlying room in the City and Guilds Building to the Bessemer Building, to provide additional much needed desk space/offices. Part of the Imperial College London’s South Kensington campus, this was a fast paced project within an occupied environment.

Logan was involved early on in the design and development of the scheme to increase the benefits and successful outcome for the client.

Works included internal structural wall demolition and asbestos removal, to create the connection of an existing space between two buildings, allowing for new desk and office space.

Working within an occupied environment, it was essential that all services were maintained and site access and egress routes were professionally managed to allow for minimal disruption and noise restrictions for the client and occupants.

“The timescale on this project was very aggressive from the outset; it is a credit to Logan that not only this was achieved, but that the quality of the finished space has not been compromised
