The PCC of St Helen’s Bishopgate employed Forcia to undertake the rejuvenation of St Andrew Undershaft, which is located in the shadow of 30, St Mary Axe, The Gherkin.
The Church, itself was constructed in 1532 and its a Grade I listed building. Much of the original features had been maintained including the internal oak doors. The Client wished to improve upon the church hall and make it a more comfortable and vibrant space for use by its congregation, whilst retaining the historical features and uniqueness of this building. The Architect (Sheppard Architects LLP) had created a sympathetic scheme that could meet these requirements. This included the erection of a new mezzanine floor and the creation of meeting rooms and WC Facilities. Forcia also undertook the installation of a new mechanical and electrical services to the church, with a focus on specialist lighting and Audio Visual installations.
