Three - Glasgow
The Daiwa Story revolves around the refurbishment of the 82,000 sq ft listed headquarters building at 5 King William Street for Japanese investment bank Daiwa Capital Markets. The building’s stunning exterior and reception area are listed and to be restored and given a more contemporary feel.
‘Open heart surgery’ required in relation to the strip out and replacement of the mechanical and electrical plant whilst the building is still awake. Daiwa’s desire to minimise its carbon footprint during this process has also played a key part in the procurement strategy. Logistical skills and sensitivity combine to deliver a fascinating project and restore one of London’s gems to its former glory.
