This project involved undertaking the role of Civil & Structural Engineers, Mechanical & Electrical Engineers and PSDP on the conversion of an existing 1940’s male & female public toilets into a cafe with associated amenities at Harold’s Cross Park. The initial works involved removing existing ground floor, all internal partitions & walls, and all mechanical & electrical fittings within the existing building. Once the strip out was completed, a simple structural solution was implemented to support the concrete roof to allow for an open plan area within the building. All concrete works within the building were repaired and additional windows and doors were installed. The building received a full bespoke Mechanical & Electrical fit out to client’s specifications.
The Tearooms have been nominated in the ‘Best Public Building’ Category in 2015 Local Government Awards.
