Refurbishment with repeat client


Priory House

Built has been engaged by repeat client, Nuveen, to undertake the Lump Sum D&B of this commercial building in Clerkenwell, adjacent to St John’s Gate, built in 1504.

Value: £10m

Client: Nuveen

Architect: Buckley Gray Yeoman

Completion date: July 2022

Priory House is a heavy refurbishment which has some major structural interventions to enable both a lateral extension to the front and rear of the building as well as a new fourth level.

Once the envelope works are complete there will be a new Cat A Fitout including all new services and a Cat B Lobby with the scheme striving for BREEAM ‘Excellent’, Net Zero Carbon and a high WIRED score.

There are also intricate external works which interface with the 500-year-old ‘St John’s Gate’ including podium level sky lights to bring natural light into the basement areas.
