Multimillion-pound refurb of landmark offices begins

A landmark office building in Coventry city centre is set for a revamp with a £9m refurbishment.

The six storey, 90,330 sq ft building, Sherbourne House, will be relaunched as ‘Bourn’ with completion expected this summer.

Rob Hemus, asset director for IM Properties said: “A contemporary feel will be reflected in the interiors with stripped back flexible floor plates and a new exposed M&E system.

“Planting both inside and out will promote a sense of wellbeing, offering a connection to nature, unifying the exterior landscaping with the communal areas inside.”

He added: “We’re creating a 48-space cycle hub in the basement of the building, with dedicated lockers, showers and changing facilities, so people can run, walk or cycle to work.

“We’re also installing 10 EV charging points to enable people to feel more confident about using electric cars for their commute, with provision for an additional 24.

“We’re really excited to bring Bourn to the Coventry office market and are confident it will be seen as a major asset in the city.

“It comes at an exciting stage in Coventry’s transformation, accelerated by its City of Culture status, which will add further appeal to potential occupiers.”

CBRE and Bromwich Hardy are acting as agents on Bourn.
