Orms were appointed to refurbish and extend The Bailey which includes a Grade II Listed Building at the front and is in close proximity to a number of listed buildings including the Central Criminal Court, 15 Old Bailey and Church of St Sepulchre
The property was originally built for the Chatham and Dover Railway Company alongside an open railway track and Holborn Viaduct station to the rear.
The building functioned primarily as offices on the upper floors and parcel depot with vehicular movement throughout the ground floor.
We developed our approach closely with Endurance Land (part of the Nan Fung Group) who were especially interested in high quality environments which provide a healthy workspace. The refurbished 16 Old Bailey has achieved a BREEAM Excellent accreditation, EPC A and a Wired Certified Platinum rating and has attracted the occupier IPG Mediabrands, who prelet much of the building.
