ISG Hong Kong is delivering reinstatement works within a historic commercial building in Pedder Street, Central Hong Kong.
Listed as a Grade II historic building, The Pedder Building was built in 1923 and is the last surviving colonial architecture built before the Second World War.
The reinstatement package spans 50,000 sq ft which include the three main floors from the ground up, along with a basement area.
This project sees ISG return to a familiar site, having delivered the fit out of the same tenancy in 2012 for its former occupier, Abercrombie & Fitch.
ISG was awarded the recommended contractor to reinstate the premises, following the team’s first-hand experience, performance, and delivery in the past - which equally led to a successive appointment for Abercrombie & Fitch’s new retail store in Harbour City.
The reinstatement will require highly sensitive and painstaking techniques throughout construction phases - to ensure maximum protection and preservation of the building’s original features.
Other challenges foreseen include sourcing of authentic finishes to match the original architectural elements.
ISG kicks off with a feasibility study and a detailed building survey to revisit the property’s structural integrity, building management services and reviewing the design and construction brief to suit the future occupier.
Following the statutory approval, ISG begins works on site and will be hand over the project in mid-2018 to the landlord and looking into the future hoping to work with future tenants taking space in this landmark site.
