As the world of retail has shifted dramatically in recent years, department store buildings have needed radical change. Civic Engineers is helping deliver a major refurbishment to one such building at 318 Oxford St which currently hosts House of Fraser.
Major improvement works will see continued retail use in the lower levels of the building. The refurbishment will add an eighth floor to the 35,000m2 building, boasting a rooftop restaurant and extensive terraces. The sixth and seventh floors will be rebuilt to provide high quality covid compliant office space while the second to fifth floors are retained and converted, also for office use.
