SCOPE OF SERVICES
Gallagher Jeffs have been engaged by Jinshan Investment Group to drive the project from pre-construction works through to completion. There’s a great degree of complexity to the project, due to access constraints and preservation of the buildings heritage which includes the art deco façade, which was originally built in 1912.
Construction commenced in August 2019 and is scheduled for completion in 2021
