Zig Zag Commercial Property of the Year
The Zig Zag building in Victoria Street has been named the Commercial Property of the Year at the Props Awards Lunch.
Zig Zag was put forward for the award by Land Securities, our client on the project, and its win is recognition of the remarkable strength of the work done there.
The building itself was part of a joint project to replace Kings Gate House, a large ground-scraper from the 1960s, as part of Land Securities’ work to regenerate Victoria and make it a destination for the future.
The site was surrounded by other buildings, London Underground tunnels, and a major road, which we worked to ensure would remain unaffected by the building while maximising the usable space across the site. This saw the basement reach within 1 metre of the Victorian railways tunnel walls – two metres closer than London Underground had through possible.
The project has become a flagship for the remarkable work Pell Frischmann does in leading the industry in our engineering ambition, and this award goes to show that our efforts are recognised by a wider community of businesses.
