Historical Building Renovation – The Clock Tower, Walton-on-Thames
The Clock Tower is a grade II listed building in Walton with a long history.
When Simon Holdings purchased it in 1997 Oaks Property completed a full refurbished to provide a modern, air conditioned office space. Whilst retaining the building’s original features.
This project was undertaken by Oaks with close liaison with British Heritage to provide an impressive listed building exterior whilst offering all the benefits of a modern office environment.

The brief was to create modernised office space to the highest standard in just three months.
Walls were removed in the rear office (which was once a stable) to create an open-plan office.
The entire building was re-wired, re-plumbed and air conditioning was installed, as was cat 2 lighting and cat 5 wiring.
New toilets and a kitchen were added and entrance points were created or reopened.
We also needed to add steel structural supports to the rear office as we were removing all the inner walls that had sectioned the building into smaller offices.
We opened up the original making it a feature of the reception area.
This modern space was created without compromising the atmosphere of the historical building.
The building and 17th century Clock are maintained by Oaks Property on an ongoing basis.
Recently, Oaks Property were called in to redesign the Car Park to make more parking available for the growing staff numbers. This work involved removing flower beds, laying block paving and re-tarmacking.
