Windsor House


On St James’s street in SW1A, this development included demolishing the original building, and erecting a new one which included a new double basement level; adjacent to a London Underground interchange tunnel and several roads.

Walsh worked closely with the contractors Galliford Try to devise an efficient buildable solution using a steel frame structure. The tight central London site had significant constraints including the existing basement substation that had to remain live until a new facility had been constructed on the site.

We were also tasked with developing this area into a double basement. This required Approval In Principle (AIP) and several further approvals such as Party Wall Awards, three separate roads and a London Underground tunnel.

During the project it became apparent that the required lettable area in the basements was constrained by a variety of boundary conditions. To solve these challenges without compromising the plans, we worked closely with Galliford Try’s temporary works engineers and successfully achieved everything in the original plans without delay.
