22 Shad Thames is the iconic building in Butler’s Wharf once home to design guru Sir Terence Conran. Completed by Michael Hopkins and Partners in 1991 as a showroom, office and apartment for the late silversmith and designer David Mellor, it was subsequently occupied by Sir Terence and later his practice Conran and Partners from the late 90s to 2020 when the asset was acquired.

PBC has been appointed by Lateral Investment Management to provide project management and cost consultancy services for internal refurbishment of the space to CAT A + standard across all five floors of office space. The work also includes a proposed extension, the installation of a new lift and MEP systems, as well as the redesign of common ‘social’ areas.

Due to the listed status of the building, Lateral has worked hard to ensure a sympathetic design that makes the original features shine, while ensuring a modern sustainable and high quality interior design and fit-out. Work is due to start by the end of 2021.

Lateral is a rising and fast-growing investment management firm, based in London with schemes also underway in Oxford. 22 Shad Thames will be the company’s flagship office asset and is due for completion in 2022.
