Mace seals its biggest London office refit for a decade

The £120m green refit of Goldman Sachs’ former European HQ on Fleet Street is getting underway for a mid-2024 finish.

Mace Interiors will remodel the 11-storey Peterborough Court building to create nearly 300,000 sq ft of Grade A workspace and ground floor retail.

The design strategy for the refurbishment of the iconic building has been driven by focusing on retention of fabric and structural elements, maximising lettable area and improving the energy efficiency of building operations to create a market leading offer for tenants.

It will feature transformed Fleet Street and Shoe Lane building entrances, a long gallery entrance with new glazing, and redesigned interiors aligned to the highest sustainability standards, health and wellness and dual-feed, 100% ‘All-Electric’ technology.

Stewart Ward, managing director of Mace Interiors, said the building would target green building certification BREEAM status of ‘Excellent’, or better, as well as ‘Platinum’ ratings for WELL.

Mace will be supported by JRA for architectural services and BDP for structures and lighting, with Gardiner & Theobald delivering project and cost management.

Phillip Bennison, Head of Development and Investment at Broadwater Capital, said: “Demand for prime, amenity-focused offices in central London continues to strengthen post-pandemic, as businesses seek to create engaging and versatile spaces for employees to work together, especially those with embedded cosy, relaxed open spaces and innovative features.”
