Fort Dunlop

Fort Dunlop Fort Dunlop

Through minimum demolition, considered placement of cores, a combined services + re-glazing strategy, new roof-top, rear elevation and hotel extension, the Fort has been re-invented to accommodate market interest from 1,000 to 50,000 sq ft users.

A sky promenade creates valuable amenity space for building users, whilst also hiding all new services associated with the re-use, whilst a new green roof ensures a natural habitat for the wildlife and protected species which occupied the site during its years of decline. By adopting a clear and bold design approach it has been possible to realise a speculative development which both maintains and enhances the integrity of this landmark building.

The fact that it is let 97% let two years ahead of schedule is testament to the flexibility of the design and to the outstanding success of the building’s regeneration.

    Main pic looks like a multi storey car park. Love the stairs area though!
