Located at the iconic Taj Hotel - 51 Buckingham Gate, the project consisted of the reconfiguration and refurbishment of an existing bar and restaurant in central London to provide All-Day dining and a private club/lounge called The Chambers. The restaurant, called [email protected], and The Chambers club facilities provide private dining, wine cellar, work stations and bars.

The Chambers is the first European outpost of IHCL’s highly regarded private members club.

Our Spanish office is undertaking all Valeo Management's current Iberian student accommodation projects (Barcelona, Granada, Sevilla, Porto I and Porto II).

Along with our client and partner teams, BOX accomplished very complex pre-construction stage tasks such as the management of legal / technical due diligences, feasibility studies, fund approvals, design development management from inception to construction, value engineering and high level negotiations in councils planning departments. In addition we have undertaken the successful management and negotiations of different tenders and completely bespoke construction contracts.
