St Enoch Centre extension services

The large-scale regeneration of Glasgow city centre begins with the extension and refurbishment of this major shopping centre. First built in the late 1980s, St Enoch — which already occupies three city blocks — is to be extended on two sides, and a link is to be inserted to the adjacent Debenham’s. Our services engineers are working closely with the Carbon Trust to find ways of reducing CO2 emissions over the building’s lifetime. Historically the centre — whose façade is entirely glazed — has relied on extensive combined heating and cooling systems. Even so, excessive radiant heat has been a recurring problem. We’ve used CFD modelling to develop key services interventions to promote low-energy performance alternatives. For example, adapting the buildin ...

Donna Karan Collections refurbishment

The original façade of a listed Georgian townhouse was the ideal choice for this flagship store but the interior required extensive work. Our client wanted to increase floor space while creating cleaner lines. We employed structural modifications to open up the front of the four-storey building.

135-137 New Bond Street

We developed an integrated scheme in which existing elements were retained, reused and/or strengthened where possible, and the constraints they imposed were thoroughly un ...

Wempe refurbishment

Ramboll UK helped transform the ground and basement floors of a former fashion store that overlooks London's Bond Street into an elegant showroom for Wempe's luxury line of jewellery and watches.The main structural intervention involved the removal of a staircase positioned in the middle of the retail area. Infilling the void and inserting a new single flight staircase at the back of the store created an uninterrupted space.The basement's change of use from a trading floor to a stockroom demanded a complete refurbishment. Ground floor walls, floors and fittings were replaced to match the company's high-end image. Special care was taken to devise engineering solutions for a myriad of services, including air-conditioning and top lighting.A new recessed sto ...

In the heart of Kings Cross and dating back to 1875-1895, the Lighthouse building is a local landmark. It was left derelict for many years until developers; UK Real Estate took the bold decision to redevelop the Grade II listed building that was on Historic England’s Buildings at Risk Register.
