Cityside House, Whitechapel

Whitechapel, London

Ellmer has been awarded the contract to carry out the structural alterations, extension and refurbishment of Cityside House, Whitechapel, on behalf of Great Portland Estates.

The works comprise of structural demolition of the existing roof, 4th floor slab and the central core down to basement level, including alterations to the façades and Cat A fit-out. A new exposed concrete core will be constructed by Byrne Bros. and four additional floors will be added to the structure encapsulated with curtain walling. The cat A fit-out will include such items as destination control for the new lifts and organic lighting control which we understand will be a first for the UK market.
