Project Info

Project Overview

This project posed many challenges not least due to building restrictions imposed on the iconic Piccadilly Circus as a Grade II Listed building within the Regent Street Conservation Area, but also working within London traffic and noise management restrictions as well as keeping the store trading between 08:00hrs to 24:00hrs daily.

  • Detailed phasing and collaborative planning with all the stakeholders resulted in total loss of only 1.5 hrs trading during the whole project which was a credit to all those involved and in such a demanding environment.
  • All works undertaken in phased hoarded areas as the store remained open throughout. Works required extensive underpinning to all floors whilst lift and escalators were removed and repositioned.
  • New first floor with 1250 sq metres of new sales floor, pharmacy and Boots Opticians with two new escalators fitted over 1 night due to collaborative planning and accurate pre construction techniques with no disruption to the Iconic Piccadilly lights above.
