Members invited to see Osborne’s Hobhouse project

8 February 2019

The CIOB London Novus is teaming up with Osborne to host a site visit to its Hobhouse project.

The Hobhouse estate holding companies awarded Osborne a £31m contract in 2017 for the Arquitectonica-designed (in association with Brisac Gonzalez) mixed-use development on Whitcomb Street, next to Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery’s Sainsbury Wing.

The design includes 20 high-end apartments, 1,100m2 office and 650m2 retail space. The redevelopment will also see the return of the prestigious Royal Watercolour Society to its original home.

The project is due to complete this year. It comprises a steel frame with an infill of structurally insulated panels and brick outer leaf, a total of over 12,000 special individual bricks.

The site visit will show the erection of the sip panels, brick install, M&E works, window install, and the basement Grade 2-listed vaults.

The visit takes place at 2pm (please arrive 10 minutes early to register) on 13 February at Hobhouse Court, 3-17 Whitcomb Street, London, WC2H 7HA. Click here for more and to register.
