The refurbishment programme aims for the building to achieve a BREEAM 'Excellent' rating.

Nigel Fuller, Senior Fund Manager at L&G, said: "This refurbishment will be a strong example of how we can transform existing buildings in prime urban locations to make them suitable for today's modern working environment. There is a huge demand for this type of work space from blue chip occupiers who recognise the importance of its work environment to improve its staff's well-being and productivity."

Rob Joyce, GRAHAM Construction's London office Director, added: "The refurbishment and extension of Senator will significantly improve the energy performance of the building as well as the environment and facilities for its tenants. Using our highly skilled team, we have planned the works to ensure a smooth process and the enhancement of the building to the highest quality."
