About This Project

The project comprised the extensive refurbishment and structural alterations to the Trocadero Pavilion to incorporate Ripley’s ‘Believe It or Not’ museum, a bar and a nightclub.  Working in restricted multi-level space, a new lift shaft was created to service the whole building from bottom to top.

The Role

Our role in the refurbishment of London’s famous landmark Trocadero building was to provide the co-ordination of processes between the landlord and the multi-tenants occupying the building: whilst also project managing the replacement of all the landlord’s services. This followed our review of obligations under the leases and conclusions that the obligations could not be met by the Landlord without complete plant replacement.

This complex project located at the busy No. 1 Piccadilly Circus was completed within the 12 month timescale due to excellent communication and teamwork between all parties and the client.
