Guildhall House is a prestigious steel framed office block in the City of London. The building structure was originally designed by Andrews Kent & Stone in the 1980s, as a steel framed building with concrete floors supported within the depth of the steel beams, to form a slim floor plate. The elevations are clad in Portland stone.
AKSWard was appointed by the city of London to undertake structural engineering works associated with the complete fit-out of the building. These works included various alterations to the existing structure including the lowering of the entrance foyer slab to facilitate level access from the street level. The lower slab also included a hidden disabled access lift, which hung from the ground floor slab into the basement level.
