Clifford Devlin was part of the project team assembled by Land Securities to work on the award-nominated 20 Eastbourne Terrace project. The redevelopment of the 18-storey office block in West London has been shortlisted for the Commercial category of this year’s London RIBA awards organised by the Royal Institute of British Architects.

Clifford Devlin was involved during the enabling works to remove asbestos from various parts of the 1950’s building. The 10 week project included removal of asbestos insulating board (AIB) in the risers, panelling under window sills, bitumen-based ACMs in the screed, floor tiles and a full decontamination of the boiler room.

The office building next to Paddington Station in West London was extensively re-modelled and renovated. Designed by Fletcher Priest Associates, the scheme retained and extended the 1950s structural frame and re-clad the 18 storey tower in fully glazed unitised panels. The development has created 93,000 sq ft of Category-A new office space and offers businesses a feature double-height reception with a large cafe space, business lounge, a 2,000 sq ft private roof terrace and 160 bike stands. The building achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating upon completion.

The winners of this year’s RIBA London Regional Awards will be announced at an awards ceremony at the RIBA, 66 Portland Place, on Monday 22 May. For 50 years the RIBA awards and prizes have championed and celebrated the best architecture in the UK and around the world, no matter the form, size or budget.
