30 Euston Square is the new headquarters of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP), and London’s newest conference and events destination.
This prestigious £22m refurbishment offered Ahmarra a rare opportunity to work on a Grade 2 listed building. Ahmarra Installations contract, through the main contractor Structure Tone Limited, was worth over £730.000.
Richard Panrucker, Ahmarra Installations Director, said: “The refurbishment work on this landmark heritage property has been a major undertaking and the project involved a number of specialised requirements. It was important that we understood the importance of respecting generations of tradition and craftsmanship”.
State-of-the-art facilities include a 300-seat auditorium; 60 meeting rooms; flexible State Rooms and 40 bedrooms. Ahmarra’s contract consisted of supplying and fitting numerous elements including over 500 specialist doorsets and ironmongery. A number of the doors were required to meet English Heritage requirements for listed buildings as well as current fire regulations. Other works included joinery in the stateroom, atrium panelling and specialist skirting to fan coil units.
Ahmarra Installations are currently working on a number of prestigious London projects including the Mondrian Hotel, which is part of the Sea Containers House redevelopment on the South Bank, and the Avant-garde Tower in Shoreditch.
