New Mercury House was notable for the flexibility of its space and its speedy delivery.

The project took the lessons learned from earlier projects in order to enable fast delivery of shell and core, allowing fit-out to begin early.  We worked closely with the owner-occupier, Cable & Wireless, to provide a new headquarters for its subsidiary Mercury Communications.

The seven-storey building is located in Red Lion Square, a Georgian public square that now supports both residential and commercial uses.  The square was renovated after close consultation with residents.
