Occupying a dominant position at the junction of Farringdon Road and Clerkenwell Road, 91/93 Farringdon Road has seen several commercial uses since its construction early in the 20th century.

The building has now been fully refurbished to Category A standards and provides 20,000 ft² of lettable office space.  Only the external walls and suspended upper floors of the original building have been retained and the existing lower ground floor slab has been removed and a new slab constructed at a lower level to form a 5.10m high lower ground floor.

The building is entered off Farringdon Road via a steel and glass bridge onto a mezzanine reception level overlooking the lower ground floor and contained within a triple height glazed atrium.

The existing floors are fully refurbished including raised access floors, chilled beam air conditioning and timber veneered and tiled toilet pods.  The external elevations have been cleaned and refurbished and new double glazed, double hung timber sash windows have been installed.




A £5.5 million refurbishment has succeeded in lending “presence” to a hitherto anonymous nine storey office block in London.

The building was designed by Seifert’s in the early 1960s and used to be known as Minet House, as it was the London base of the financial company.

The building occupies a site on the corner of Leman Street and Prescot Street and its concrete structure is clad in red brick

A review of the building’s likely occupancy levels, together with studies relating to emergency escape and fire fighting access, allowed the design team to significantly reduce the core areas. Moreover, the use of a four-pipe fan coil system allowed the removal of all perimeter heating systems.

The net lettable area was increased by ten per cent as a result of these alterations.

The lifts have been refurbished and are now clad in mirror and cedar, with fibre optic lighting.  In addition, the size of the existing lifts allowed for the inclusion of a small leather bench.

The building, which has 100,000 sq ft of lettable floor space, has a basement and rooftop plant room. The completed development has been let to the tenants of the adjoining building.

Services were approaching the end of their useful lives and required renewal. In addition, core areas had very generous space allocations for toilets, and the requirements for means of escape led to corridors being built adjacent to many of the core elements.




Included in the service was the negotiation with the existing tenant  in respect of financial contributions from the outgoing tenant and the agreement of the freeholder for alterations required by our client.

Subsequent to the completion of these works, a further contract was carried to completely replace the reception area with facilities to reflect the corporate image of the client and to comply with the introduction Disability Discrimination Act. 

Fleming Russell Stent have recently completed the total refurbishment of an existing 50,000ft² office building to provide a new UK headquarters for the company.

Fleming Russell Stent have provided turnkey consultancy services for all disciplines from initial site appraisals of various locations through to completion of works on site. The contract, which was procured on a two stage tender basis was complete and ready for client occupation in twelve weeks at a cost of approximately £2.5 million. 

We continue to act for Mondial on a further project for the provision of marketing support facilities, which will be provided in another building in Croydon




Parking is provided within the building at lower ground floor level.  Disabled access to comply with recently introduced regulations is available viai a ramp to the raised ground floor or using the lift from the basement car parking.

No. 1 Scarbrook Road, Croydon was originally constructed as a shell and core speculative office building which, following the purchase by Mondial Assistance (UK) Ltd, was fitted out to office standards including steel encapsulated raised floors, demountable aluminum framed and glazed partitions, mineral fibre suspended ceilings and a two pipe Versatemp air conditioning installation.

Category 5 data wiring and outlets were fitted within the raised floor and a computer room constructed at ground floor level complete with UPS and halon fire protection system.

Balconies are provided both ends of the building at fourth floor level which are used for general entertaining and functions.

The fifth floor is fitted out as conference rooms with the main boardroom featuring an oriel window with views over Croydon and the surrounding area.

In addition to the fitting out works, Fleming Russell Stent successfully resolved issues relating to defective works to the shell and core building.
