Axtell House has been one of our most prominent and ambitious redevelopments to date, and RED Construction played a pivotal role in the successful delivery of this exciting project.

Unphased by the difficult and technical aspects of the high-quality scheme, the team at RED carried out their role in their project with expertise and professionalism. RED’s experience with Central London buildings in conservations areas was also immensely valuable, with the team confidently and respectfully handling the unique challenge of Axtell House’s unified historic and contemporary elements. Crucially for us, RED managed the project in a way that allowed for minor disruption to the busy surrounding Soho area, and with the client’s ground floor tenants able to operate throughout the works.

Axtell House’s state-of-the-art structure and superior finishes are a testament to RED, as is the swift signing of the space to one of the world’s leading retail companies.
