Brookfield Multiplex – Charlotte St & Whitfield St Structural Surveys

Delatim were awarded the structural surveys for a major £200m mixed use development at 80 Charlotte Street; The 367,000 sq ft redevelopment included 336,000 sq ft of office, residential and retail space at 80 Charlotte Street and 31,000 sq ft of residential space at nearby 65 Whitfield Street and 1-8 Whitfield Place. In addition, a new public realm park was created, whilst retail units will enhance the ground floor frontage and identity.  The new scheme was designed by leading architects, Make, and was a part refurbishment and part new build project with a substantial proportion of the existing structures retained, thereby cutting waste and carbon emissions whilst reducing the construction period.
