76 Upper Ground contractor appointed 17.08.23

Multiplex has been appointed as the main contractor for 76 Upper Ground.

Designed by Sir Denys Lasdun and completed in 1983 as an office and client marketing building for IBM, the building no longer meets modern-day occupier requirements. AHMM’s proposals sensitively remodel, refurbish, and extend the Grade II listed building delivering 300,000 square feet of flexible and highly sustainable office space with 50,000 square feet of outdoor terraces providing occupants panoramic river views.

Delivered with developer Stanhope, the scheme will create a new pedestrian focussed entry sequence in place of the first floor car drop off, retain the existing iconic buildings structure and façade and provide a long-term future for the building, greatly improving and enhancing it setting within the South Bank conservation area. With exceptional sustainability targets, the building will become a noteworthy example of low carbon office design, with a commitment to achieving Net Zero Carbon in both construction and operation. Targeting BREEAM Outstanding certification, the proposals maximise off-site fabrication of key building elements such as façade and MEP systems to minimise waste on-site, prioritise the procurement of re-use steel and incorporates biophilic landscaping within the terraces, enhancing the connection to nature.

Works have started on site, with requisite enabling works underway and completion set for Q4 2024.
