Further to the purchase of George Nott (GN) House on Holloway Head in Birmingham we met with the new owner, on site, of this 6-storey office building constructed in the 1950s.
At the start of the works two of the six floors were tenanted, with one of those being at 50%. Most other areas in the building were in a poor state of repair or modified extensively, making them unattractive to potential tenants.
A programme of refurbishment was undertaken, starting with work to the 3rd and 4th floors. This principally involved removal of unwanted installations, refurbishment of the suspended ceiling, decorating and renewal of the carpet. Tenants were quickly found for these renewed areas.
The second floor was occupied by a sitting tenant, however the first floor (the largest in the property) had been used by a further education provider and consequently partitioned extensively. The work undertaken here included the removal of the internal partitions, modification and refurbishment of the ceiling and numerous electrical alterations. The rear half of this floor has a flat roof which had been leaking for some time and so this was repaired prior to internal decoration and new floor coverings. The front and rear halves were then segmented, including the provision of a kitchen. These works were then repeated on the upper ground floor, including the formation of a new common area allowing access to a new separate unit to the rear.
All elements of the refurbishment have been provided or overseen by the How Are You team, including:
