This was a Fast Track conversion of an existing Parking Shop facility on a ground floor retail space of an occupied five storey building in the busy Mare Street thoroughfare near to the Hackney Town Hall Piazza.

This work was undertaken for the Youth Offenders Team at the London Borough of Hackney and included the replacement of the existing shopfront, formation of interview rooms and administration areas, alterations and improvements to the MEP Services with particular care for the existing of office areas throughout the fully occupied building.

A major element of the successful design solution revolved around the intrinsic CCTV, access control, security and panic alarm systems that were co-ordinated carefully with the requirements of both the Youth Offenders Team and the Metropolitan Police.
