Osborne wins £21m London City grade II interior refurb

The City of London has signed Osborne as main contractor for the challenging £21m refurbishment for the 1903 Grade II listed building at 84 Moorgate.

Formerly home to part of the London Metropolitan University, Electra House project will see the 54,000 sq ft building upgraded to offices to suit a fintech tenant.

The project will demand the very careful and sensitive refurbishment to the basement and across the building’s seven floors.

There will be alterations to partitions, secondary glazing, new lifts, and roof top enclosures. The reconfiguration and updating of electrical and plant systems will provide modern efficient and reliable facilities and provide improved accessibility.

The project will start in the new year and will be completed at the end February 2023.

Osborne Built Environment Managing Director Gordon Kew said: “This is a very special building with great heritage and including many significant decorative features.

“We will undertake the work with the care and respect that this great building deserves. I am looking forward to seeing the completed scheme which will create many intelligently designed spaces with modern services and facilities that will improve the working environment for the users whilst protecting the fantastic heritage of the building.”
