The Embassy of the Republic of Korea
60 Buckingham Palace Road, London
Project Value: £4.8m / 22,000 ft2
Kingfisher Associates were appointed by the Korean Embassy back in January 2018 as Employers Agent, Cost Consultant and Project Manager for the phased refurbishment of their eight storey Embassy building in Buckingham Palace Road.
Phase One was completed in February 2018 and involved the complete remodelling of the existing consular facilities including major internal structural works to create a new feature curved staircase link between the new entrance / reception area on the ground floor and the new consular facilities on the first floor. In addition, the seventh floor was completely refurbished to provide new meeting room and kitchen facilities. Throughout the works, the Embassy offices remained in occupation on floors two to six.
Phase Two involved the strip out and refurbishment of all remaining floors of the building, including offices, meeting rooms and the Ambassador’s offices. In addition, the existing lift installation was renewed together with reroofing works. The reception and consular facilities remained in full operation throughout phase two.
The second phase of works was completed in December 2018
