KWB has managed this 40,000 sq ft landmark office building for some years. The current occupiers include WEA, Emms Gilmore Liberson Legal Practice, CWA Engineering, Systra, Bell Cornwall and KWB itself.
During our time managing Lancaster House, we have been involved in the full refurbishment of the property, including re-roofing and replacement of all windows. This required our team to liaise closely with all occupiers, contractors and the professional advisors.
The standard management services we provide at the property, include collection of rents and service charge, providing office cleaning, placing and overseeing a commissionaire, and all services concerning the other common areas.
These services, as well as a tenacious, yet pragmatic approach to lease negotiations, has driven the property’s rental level up by 40%.
