Demolition gets underway at 8SG

Contractor Killby & Gayford has begun work on the £3.35M refurbishment of the ICE’s 8 Storey’s Gate (8SG) building in Westminster.

The project will involve the complete refurbishment of the four storey Grade II listed office building and conservation work to preserve the original staircases and decorative brickwork.

The project is due for completion at the beginning of next year, but recently suffered a setback when one of the contractors, JRE , filed for insolvency. The ICE and Killby & Gayford said that this will have no impact on costs.
Design and build contractor Killby & Gayford will be working alongside Black Architecture, project manager Gardiner & Theobald, structural engineer Mason Navarro Pledge and services engineer Hoare Lea & Partners.

The Victorian building dates back to at least 1882. Its last role was as a European Commission base. The refurbished building will accommodate ICE staff currently spread out across the capital.
