Project Details

Axis delivered this heritage void project within the Grade II* listed 1 New Square, on behalf of the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn. The Society of Lincoln’s Inn is one of the four Inns of Court in London to which barristers of England and Wales belong and where they are called to the Bar. Its architecture makes it popular with film and television companies who regularly use the site to film period dramas.  

Our heritage division began their programme of works with a soft strip including demolition of an internal wall adjoining a kitchenette and WC. We also demolished a small section of stud work wall and isolated water to entry points, then removed the electrical and gas supplies. The team replaceceilings and removed all of the existing flooring and wall coverings in preparation for internal refurbishment. 

Once the rooms were stripped, our team embarked on a full rewire and installation of a new gas supply and heating system. We constructed a new stud work wall and erected a bi-folding door prior to the installation of two high-end kitchenettes and bathrooms. We diverted the water main and capped off the water and waste pipes, adapting them to suit the new layout alongside removing redundant pipework.  

The team then installed a new condensing boiler, macerator, heater and heating system. We supplied and installed a wall-mounted data cabinet, lighting, and fire alarms to serve the rear external area to the building and front lobby. Our heritage void project works were completed with decoration to the internal fabric of the building involving a plaster skim finish to ceilings and walls, taking into account the age and historic importance of the features.
