Case Study

Greater London House

Project and Maintenance Contract Awarded

Greater London House is one of the best known Art Deco buildings in London. Built in 1926, it was originally a tobacco factory and formerly known as the Carreras Building.  It was the first factory in Britain to contain air conditioning and a dust extraction plant.  In 1961, it was converted into offices and then restored in the late 1990s. The front facade still holds the name ‘Carreras’ and is now the home to ASOS, the British Heart Foundation, Young & Rubicam and other tenants.

Hemlow have been awarded the maintenance contract for the landlord’s plant, together with the project contract to replace the existing plant and extend Lazari’s own offices. We have already installed air conditioning in the building reception, and comfort cooling in Lazari’s offices as well as in the lower ground floor gym, which is occupied by Metabolic.  Lazari’s are renewing the long term lease for ASOS, one of it’s main tenants; a prerequisite of that being that the landlord will update the plant.
