48 Leicester Square - Brookfield Multiplex
Triple Storey Eco Anti Vandal & Containex Units - Completed March 2015
Perhaps one of the most high profile projects in the history of Carter Accommodation is Brookfield Multiplex's refurbishment of LSQ, 48 Leicester Square.
BM's goal on this project is to modernise LSQ and "set a high standard of environmental sustainability". We have therefore supplied product to reflect that, installing a 12 bay Containex building supplemented with 6 Eco anti vandal units, all obtaining a B rated EPC certificate.
The main challenge with project was the location. The site is less than 3 miles away from Charing Cross Station, so Metropolitan Police insist that all abnormal loads are moved before 7:30am. This combined with the colossal foot traffic on Leicester Square meant we had to complete all lifting at 6:00am. Transport was only half the challenge as we then needed to find somewhere in the centre of London to park the fit out team's van!
Main installation took a week from delivery to handover and is one of our proudest achievements to date.
