The Kodak


Gross Internal Floor Area

Watkins Payne was responsible for the design of the mechanical, electrical, and public health services for the renovation project at 65 Kingsway, London WC2B 6TD. The project aims to enhance the building’s layout by introducing commuter facilities in the basement level, updating the reception area, and reconfiguring the toilet cores, among other necessary modifications. The scope of the project will require a complete replacement of existing installations and the installation of CAT A facilities on all floors from ground to seven.

The proposed refurbishment works consist of the following:
• Commuter facilities at basement level
• An improved reception area
• Reconfigured toilet cores
• Central plant replacement
• CAT A facilities on all floors from ground to seven

The associated M, E, PH, and lift scope of works are to completely replace the existing installations.

The Kodak building is designed to achieve a high sustainability benchmark with a WELL ‘Gold’ and BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.
