Greengage have achieved a PCR BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating for the refurbishment of 30 Euston Square. The building was a lost architectural gem in the heart of Camden. Designed by Arthur Beresford Pite, then Professor of Architecture at the RCA, it’s construction, for the London Edinburgh & Glasgow Assurance Company, commenced in 1906 and continued in phases until the early 1930’s. Consequently it was one of (if not the) first purpose built office building in Euston. Having lain vacant for a decade when purchased by the RCGP in 2010 the building was in a very poor state of repair and needed extensive remedial conservation work before being fitted out to suit the specific requirements of the College.
In addition to state of the art naturally ventilated office space for their staff, the building now boasts two impressive internal atria (created by glazing over internal light wells), a 300 seat Auditorium, an Exam Centre, 41 Study Bedrooms for delegates, examiners and function attendees, a public cafe, and a roof terrace offering a unique view across Euston Station towards Alexandra Palace. The original panelled meeting rooms, extensive tiling, faience and mosaic work have been retained and sympathetically complimented by modern furniture and fittings to create an inspiring and unique facility.
