Case Study

Ten Trinity Square, Club Suites

Ten Trinity Square is one of London’s landmark buildings. The Grade II Listed building was opened as the headquarters of the Port of London Authority, designed by Sir Edwin Cooper in 1922, and hosted the inaugural assembly of the United Nations in what is now the UN Ballroom. The project involved the conversion of 41 white box apartments into Four Seasons Club Suites and the updating of the main ground floor entrances and entrance lobbies serving the Club Suites. QODA provided MEP design services to alter the base build installation and upgrading of systems to meet the new requirements of the Club Suites. QODA worked closely with a number of interior designers as well as the lead architect to ensure that high levels of finish and quality were met.
