Built in 1908 the building first housed


a series of promenade concerts and, subsequently, became a cinema showing mainly travel films. In 1927 it was one of a number of sites considered by the BBC for the construction of its new headquarters that, in the event, were eventually built close by – the iconic Broadcasting House. The Philharmonic Hall was used, during


World War Two, as the home of the BBC Radio drama department, then a mechanical workshop and, finally, offices before being vacated by the Corporation in 2018. It was then acquired by The Office Group


and a complete transformation internally and externally was completed with a two-storey mansard roof extension added. The site covers 28,000 sq. ft. of space. Windows on the first, second, third and

Decoroc finish because it’s extremely durable and looks very similar to aluminium powder coating. We have a thriving commercial business, so it was the logical step to invest in our own Decoroc line to take full control of lead times and offer more flexibility to our commercial partners. “This is the first time Decoroc has been

But it was worth it – demand has been so strong we’ve made a second investment to increase capacity! We’ve won a series of major commercial contracts and quickly covered our initial investment.
