Iconic Radio House In Cambridge Refurbished To Attract New Occupiers

Published by:

There are instances wherein a business can improve the working environment through office refurbishment in Sydney instead of relocating to a newer and more modern space. As the business grows, there is often need for extra space but if space is carefully planned and organized, the need to make an additional investment in real estate can be avoided.

Orchard Street Investment Management, a specialist commercial property investment manager has recently completed a refurbishment of their iconic Radio House office in Cambridge. The cost of refurbishment that reached £8.5 million was delivered on 43,388 square feet of Grade A space.

The refurbishment took 15 months to complete. The property was stripped back to its shell before the installation of a striking new double height reception room, generous shower, a new lift and a change in facilities. The floors offer a unique and efficient floor plate that extends to more than 20,000 square feet and 120 meters in height. From the floor-to-ceiling glazed windows you will see the meadows and River Cam.

The original character of the building was preserved on the first floor including the distinctive wavy roof. The key consideration throughout the design process is sustainability which led to the property gaining the coveted BREEAM Excellent rating.

According to Jamie Munday of Orchard Street, the comprehensive refurbishment project gave them the rare opportunity to be able to deliver a unique prime office asset with considerable scale to an undersupplied market that is currently experiencing good levels of rental growth.

Cambridge continues to experience increased demand from companies and new occupiers because of the presence of highly skilled workforce and the international reputation it has gained through technology and life sciences. Orchard Street believed that Radio House will appeal to a diverse range of companies that are planning to expand or set up a new headquarters in Cambridge.

Impressions certainly count from the moment that clients walk through the front door. Eye-catching and professionally designed office refurbishment in Sydney is guaranteed to put clients at ease. Well planned design can create an office that is both stimulating and relaxing not only for clients for the company’s workforce.
