A recent MGAC project, the restoration and refurbishment of London’s Eighty Strand, has been shortlisted by The AJ Retrofit Awards, 2023 in the Workplaces (£10 million and over) category. 

Presented by Architects’ Journal, the annual ceremony celebrates the design expertise behind the vital renewal and repurposing of existing buildings. This year’s winners and nominees demonstrate an astounding breadth of passion and ingenuity, from the Passivhaus retrofit of Glasgow’s post-industrial Civic House to the colossal transformation of Sheffield’s Brutalist Park Hill housing estate, which won Retrofit of the Year for Mikhail Riches. 

Developers across the UK and beyond are looking to make efficient use of existing buildingsand London’s 1930s, Art Deco Eighty Strand is as iconic as they come. Our client, Strandbrook, started this project to upgrade the former Shell Mex House to house premium, contemporary office spaces. Working from PDP London‘s designs, the professional team restored original features and created state-of-the-art office and commuter facilities with complementary accents. MGAC provided project management, cost management, and health + safety services throughout the project. 

Congratulations to Studio RHE, who won the Award in the Workplaces (£10 million and over) category with The Grammophone Works, and all other winners and nominees. With thanks to Architects’ Journal.
