Case Study

The Bower

Taking care of a trophy asset

The Bower is a landmark quarter for Old Street. Its beautifully designed buildings provide a contemporary community workspace for innovative business start-ups and major names in the creative and corporate sectors. This modern development of refurbished and new buildings consists of light, high-quality offices; a social communal hub for tenants; and a mews ‘street’ of vibrant restaurants, cafes and bars.

For over a year, Hemlow has been maintaining the M&E systems at The Warehouse – a 1960’s building that’s been refurbished but retained its period features with a nod to its industrial heritage. Now, after its recent completion, we are mobilising the contract for The Tower – a striking new landmark building offering flexible office space for dynamic occupiers such as WeWork, one of the pioneers of co-sharing workspaces.  We’re currently providing an interim contract to retain warranties before the contract goes live at the beginning of 2019.

Working closely with our client Ashdown Phillips & Partners as an extension of their FM team, we’re making sure this trophy asset works for both investors and tenants alike.
