We completed this project just over three years ago, and we still maintain strong business relationships with the project team and client. It was a very challenging but enjoyable project to be involved with. Everyone worked well together to achieve the high standards of finish and ensured that the project was completed on time. Our site manager John Spooner (now retired), and our team of sub-contractors worked tirelessly to complete a project we are all very proud to have worked on.

7-8 Philpot Lane is a Grade II listed building and a beautiful example of when historic architecture and modern design come together to create a stunning result.

This project was commissioned for the new London Headquarters of the Professional Footballers Association.

Works included the main building restoration and refurbishment and the refurbishment of the basement areas to create a very cool and private space for hosting functions.

The basement was possibly one of the oldest surviving The Great Fire of London, which destroyed most of the City of London back in 1666. Philpot Lane is just a stone’s throw away from where the fire started in Pudding Lane. This part of the building, in particular, retains excellent historic features.

This project has been recommended by the City of London for a City Heritage Award and shortlisted as a finalist for the London LABC Building Excellence Awards 2019 in two categories: ‘Best Change of Use of an Existing Building or Conversion’ and ‘Best Small Commercial Project’.
