Durkan House

Durkan House, Waltham Cross

Durkan House was an office building on a prominent site in Waltham Cross. The building was severely underlet, and we began working on a change of use scheme before the government brought in new permitted development rules. We obtain prior approval for change of use to 60 flats with associated parking. The site was then purchased by Galliard Homes for whom we worked until the project was complete. The local authority were keen to keep the existing façade to retain the building’s commercial feel, but we designed Juliet balconies to be attached which give the development some residential identity.
