LCW is an investment vehicle developing a UK commercial real estate portfolio by refurbishing properties to best practice low carbon standards and offering occupiers ongoing advice and support to ensure the building's energy efficiency specification is achieved in-use. It aims to deliver uniquely competitive buildings to attract high quality occupiers.

The project involved the sensitive refurbishment and extension of a 30,000sqft corner office building, in Shoreditch. Usable floor space has been increased by over 10% with a new zinc-clad top floor and removal of a core. The rear of the building has been opened up by cutting a new, top-lit triple-height slot through the building with new mezzanine floors served by a feature staircase, utilising the impressive floor-to-ceiling heights. The reception area, created from the old loading bay, is clad in curved timber to reflect the old use of the building, as a factory for roll-top desks. New Crittal windows and intelligent servicing helped the building achieve a BREEAM 'Excellent' rating.
