Description of The Ray

The Ray at 119 Farringdon Street is a 100,000 sq ft office building in London.

Designed by AHMM, 119 Farringdon Road comprises 100,000 sq ft (NIFA) of Grade-A office accommodation and retail space.

History

In 2016 McLaren secured the design and build contract worth £40.8m to deliver a new commercial building for Viridis Real Estate in Central London

The new build is a 9 storey post-tensioned concrete frame clad with precast concrete panels and brick slips bonded to the precast panels. The fit-out is to a CAT A standard to the majority of floor plates with exposed concrete and services. There will be retail and SME space on the ground and lower ground floors. The design includes landscaped terraces for the office accommodation to the west elevation that will enhance the visual landscape of the area.

Built in the 1960s, the existing building, formerly known as The Guardian House, was once home to The Guardian newspaper.

The £40.8m commercial development, called ‘The Ray’, will provide 100,000 sq ft of Grade-A office and retail space over nine storeys. The design includes landscaped terraces for the office accommodation to the west elevation that will enhance the visual landscape of the area.

Domonic Egan, Operations Director, McLaren Construction London said:
‘’We are delighted to be Topping Out our second commercial office project for Viridis Real Estate. This milestone achieved today is testament to the hard work of the McLaren team led by Gavin and our excellent working relationship with our customer. ‘The Ray’ is a unique and impressive building, and will be a feature on Farringdon Road for years to come.’’

Gavin Turnbull, Project Director at 119 Farringdon Road commented:
‘’It has been a pleasure to work on this project with Viridis once again, as well as with all the consultants and hard-working McLaren team. A lot of teamwork and diligence has gone into ensuring ‘The Ray’ looks as impressive as it does and this milestone achieved today should be celebrated by everyone involved in this successful project. ‘’

This is the second commercial project for customer Viridis Real Estate after successfully completing 28 Chancery Lane in 2017. Completion date is set for November 2018 with potential tenants moving in early 2019.
