Grange City Hotel
A 320 bedroom hotel and conference centre was created by the roof extension, side extension and renovation of a thirteen storey 1950s office block adjacent to Fenchurch Street station. The reinforced concrete tower is reconfigured with new columns and lateral bracing systems in steel, allowing lateral extensions to all floors. Storey height transfer structures carry bedrooms above the main auditoria and 25 metre basement swimming pool. A section of Londons Roman wall crosses the site and the two phases of the project were programmed to proceed in sequence with archaeological excavations.
