Back to Projects

Client: Esoteric Developments

Project: A 140,836ft2 CAT-A office refurbishment in Hemel Hempstead along with associated external works.

Cost: £14M

RIBA Project Stages: 4-6

Cat-A refurbishment of 142,000 sq ft office space in the heart of the Maylands central business district. The development consisted of the refurbishment of five floors of office space along with associated circulation areas, external works, and a 12,000 sq ft reception area including shower facilities to the basement. The facade was restored, and a rooftop terrace area created.

The opportunity

The building presented a unique opportunity to take a tired building and upgrade it to a vibrant and modern working space. The plans drew on the unique benefits of the area which was already home to several other businesses. Total Project Integration took over the project at the contract negotiation stage, leveraging our expertise to achieve better value for money for our client.

The challenge

ESO Capital purchased the site in 2015 and looked to transform the building. During refurbishment, we facilitated the use of the building as a filming location for 2 blockbuster Hollywood movies, Jason Bourne and Batman vs Superman, whilst works progressed.

The outcome

The project was successfully completed on time and to budget. We also assisted in negotiating a swift settlement on the final account for our client.
