Dolby, Soho Square, London
Dolby Ltd Soho Square London W1
Project Value £3.2m / 28,000 sqft
This 28 week project comprised the refurbishment and fit out of an existing Grade 2 listed building. The project was traditionally procured with a full design team on a two stage tender process.
The first stage consisted of the procurement of the fixed fee and preliminaries with the second stage being an open book subcontractor selection process, each package being the subject of a competitive tendering process. The design and construction was dictated by Dolby’s very high acoustic and audio visual requirements and achieving these within the confines of an historic building.
Project challenges included the provision of recording studios in the basement vault areas with ongoing Crossrail Tunnelling operations below the building together with substantial structural alterations to the buildings core to provide a seventy seat private cinema in the heart of the building.
