Kvaerner Trollope & Colls has won the first stage of a £14m redevelopment of one of the West End’s most exclusive locations.

Situated on the corner of St James’s Square and King Street, the new building will incorporate 94,000 sq ft of air-conditioned offices as well as six high-quality residential units.

Known as Cleveland House the development is of special significance to Kvaerner Trollope & Colls as it was built and occupied by the company in the sixties and lies just a few doors from Kvaerner Group’s main London HQ.

Demolition of the existing building has begun and construction of the new six-storey development will begin shortly. The new structure will incorporate a steel frame on piled foundations, with lightweight concrete floors and external finishes in Portland Stone cladding and brick.

Being constructed for a subsidiary of City & West End S.A. Properties the contract is due for completion in the Summer of 2000.

Cleveland House is the latest in a long line of developments undertaken in the West End by Kvaerner Trollope & Colls who’s portfolio includes Almack House, for London & Edinburgh Trust, and the new home of the Naval & Military Club, otherwise know as The "In & Out".

It is this long tradition of expertise, gained working in central London, which secured the crucial preliminary step in a two-stage competitive tendering process, resulting in Kvaerner Trollope & Colls being chosen to work with architect Treherne & Norman to produce a high quality building for a high profile site.
