The building formally known as Berger House located at 36-38 Berkeley Square in the heart of Mayfair, was deconstructed by Tilley and Barrett to make way for a new development.
Architect: Piercy & Co.
Date of Completion: 2021
The new development will offer 85,000 sqft of office space split over nine- upper storeys, with floor space of up to 11,000 sqft; 9,000 sqft of flexible retail and/or office space, space at ground and lower ground floors and 7,000 sqft of terrace gardens.
The demolition of the existing building started in early 2021, with a programme to progress demolition through to early Q4 of 2021. The mitigation and management of disruption to the local environment, nearby properties, including local residents, is a priority for the project team, this includes noise, vibration and dust suppression. Toureen Contractors utilised the latest machinery and techniques to ensure any impact on the local area and neighbouring properties/uses was kept to a minimum and was mitigated and managed effectively at all times throughout the process.
The top-down deconstruction of Berger House went well, and as we reached the ground floor at the Farm Street elevation, some extra temporary works were installed on the Berkeley Square elevation. Over five lorries of hardcore and concrete were taken off site per day, along with five skips of metal removed for recycling each week.
Mace was appointed as the principal contractor for the next phase and the new build. We worked closely with them to complete the demolition phase and have a smooth transition period.
