St George’s Court

Wednesday, November 11, 2015



 

Based in central London, at the heart of New Oxford Street and in walking distance to Covent Garden and the West end, St George’s Court is an iconic London building. Both residential and commercial, the building, finished in the 1940s, has an impressive history and was the London Head Quarters of the Ministry of Defence. Today, the building hosts Grade A office space and is co-used by the Ministry of Defence and other government departments.

The entire building, including the main reception and staircase, as well as the upstairs washrooms, recently underwent a full refurbishment to create an updated and consistent new look.

BGY architects specified PANDOMO® by ARDEX, and a range of supporting ARDEX flooring products to create a professional and open design, perfect for a contemporary office space.

Connor McCann, Sales Director at DMC contracts, and the contractor chosen for the job comments: “ARDEX put the architects behind this project, Buckley Gray Yeoman Architects (BGY), in touch with us because we are one of only a few contractors with the expertise and skill to apply PANDOMO® Terrazzo.

Thanks to the light pantone of TerrazzoPlus, we had unlimited design opportunities, so we were able to create a chevron shape which provided the welcoming and opening design which could not have been achieved with a standard tile. Our clients were delighted with the end result, both aesthetically and in terms of performance.”
