About the event

Galliford Try is undertaking a comprehensive refurbishment of the Grade II listed Adelaide House on London Bridge.  Originally completed in 1924 on the site of the original London Bridge, Adelaide House was London’s first steel frame building, and at the time of construction was the tallest building in the City.

The nine-storey building will undergo extensive remodelling and refurbishment to provide 192,674 sqft (GIFA) of high quality, contemporary office accommodation completed to a Cat A finish.  It has been designed to achieve BREEAM Excellent and WiredScore Platinum.

The development aspires to celebrate and enhance the iconic structure of the building, whilst introducing new and sustainable features attractive to City of London tenants.  Internally, the building will be stripped back to expose the existing steel frame, with exposed MEPH services installed to all office areas.  The entrance and reception area is being reconfigured to incorporate a business lounge and a new revolving door.

Works also include lift replacement and expansion, as well as the construction of new WCs within an expanded core.  Enhanced end of trip facilities will be provided in the basement, including electric scooter charging points and a bike repair station.

New windows will be installed throughout and the façade will be cleaned.  Works also include improvements to the riverside walkway and outdoor space, including the formation of a new roof terrace.


Following a visitor safety briefing and an introduction to Galliford Try, guests will be accompanied by our experienced site management team on a tour of the site, with a valuable Q&A opportunity provided at the end of the visit.
