100,000 sq ft Cat A fit-out of office space adjacent to Blackfriars train station
- Grade A office space in central London
- Fit-out specialists restored 1960s-era office
- Complex work for Network Rail
- In shadow of busy Blackfriars station
- Close to Farringdon HQ of our Interiors business
Our Interiors company delivered a complex fit out of the well-know One Puddle Dock building by Blackfriars Station.
The property benefits from easy access to the River Thames, Farringdon Street and London South Bank.
Over the course of 18 months we refurbished the six storey 1 Puddle Dock to create modern new office space that can be used by Network Rail or other companies. The 100,000 sq ft refit to Cat A and B standard included new M&E installations, lift installations, windows and external doors.
A better building
The linear 1970’s office building now provides light workable space that benefits from a fresh, new stripped back and retro look.
To achieve the transformation, our Interiors team worked with Scott Brownrigg, Parsons Brinckerhoff, Watermans as structural engineer and Sweett Group, who provided quantity surveying, project management and sustainability services.
Willmott Dixon Interiors MD Graham Shaw:
“We’re delighted to have provided such exceptional office space in a very popular part of London . The location and fast-track nature of the project further highlights our expertise in delivering large-scale office refurbishment in busy urban sites.”
This is just one example of the over 500,000ft² of commercial space we fit-out each year in sectors such as commercial, hotels, health, leisure and education.

Puddle Dock - rich in history
Puddle Dock was formerly the site of one of London's docks. It is now a minor street and the site of the Mermaid Theatre which closed in 2003.
The area was dramatically altered by major works in the 1960s, involving the reclaiming of foreshore of the River Thames at Puddle Dock and the rebuilding of Upper Thames Street as a major traffic thoroughfare.
