Richmond office redevelopment gets green light

Posted on by Rob Powell

Local planners have given permission for a major office refurbishment in Richmond upon Thames.

The redevelopment of 48,000 sq ft Thames Link House, adjacent to Richmond railway station, will create modern, air conditioned offices with a new lift, ceilings, carpeting, larger reception and cleaned brick work.

AXA REIM on behalf of Friends Life Assurance Society Limited are behind the scheme which will start this summer and is expected to take a year to complete.

The proposal was backed by Richmond Council’s Planning Committee on 17th February. Councillors felt that the refurbishment of the building, including the cleaning of the brickwork and replacement of windows, would improve the appearance of the building.

Kevin Mersh of Capita Symonds, joint agents with Martin Campbell, comments: “Thameslink House will be the first major HQ office building to come to the market for many years offering prime space adjacent to one of the busiest transport interchanges outside Central London. Given the extent of the works we are confident the building will appeal the major occupiers in the area”

Once completed, the scheme is expected to achieve a BREAAM rating of “Excellent”
