New Civil Engineer, the official magazine of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), has published a feature on our office refurbishment project, Dixon House, located in the shadow of London’s prestigious Fenchurch Street train station.

The article, titled ‘Complex Modernisation at Dixon House’, features comments from ISG senior project manager, Jon Clayden, discussing the logistical challenges of partially demolishing and reconstructing an office building while preserving a Grade II listed façade.

Using an industry-leading collaborative approach to help reinvigorate the delivery of Dixon House’s 120-year-old façade at 72-75 Fenchurch Street, the project team is ensuring the challenging and ambitious programme remains on target, and structural stability is consistent throughout demolition and construction.

The former East India Docks warehouse is fast becoming a pillar for innovation and smart solutions, creating approximately 1,000 square metres of extra office space and all the hallmarks of a highly desirable asset in the heart of the City of London.

ISG is carrying out the £16.9m office refurbishment of the façade for Dixon House, which will combine 410 tonnes of steelwork with 4,464 square metres of office space on completion.

The article also looks ahead at the next stage of the programme, which will focus on the upper levels and outer building envelope.
