"Bringing the sadly neglected Sussex House back into use as an aspirational city centre business location"
This three storey, 1960s concrete framed building had suffered from little maintenance and upkeep in recent years. This scheme was to refurbish the two upper floors and their associated common parts to bring the first and second floors into line with contemporary office environments.
As part of the overall refurbishment strategy the windows have been replaced on both upper floors. New painted W20 steel windows have been installed with horizontal centre pivot casements.
This refurbishment has brought the sadly neglected Sussex House back into use as an aspirational city centre business location, a much sought after asset which will plug a gap in the commercial property landscape in Chichester.
Gross internal area is 6,610 square feet, completed in March 2018.
Sussex House received a Highly Commended certificate in the 2018 Sussex Heritage Trust Awards.
