A new four-storey office building in the heart of St. Peter Port has been completed, with the significant project now signed off by the building firm.
St. James Place features 18,137 square feet of grade A office space and basement parking for 19 cars, six of which are car stackers, and fixed-point electric chargers.
The building was delivered by Rihoy & Son on behalf of the developer Comprop.
Gavin Rihoy, Managing Director at Rihoy & Son, said the project commenced in October 2020, with a four month delay to completion caused covid and Ukraine related supply issues.
“Whilst unavoidable, our client and the tenant were extremely understanding,” he said.
"Managing a workforce of up to 50 tradesmen on a site with no open space was logistically difficult, but it was softened by the site office we had next door. Advocate Felicity Haskins helpfully agreed to rent her old office space to us for the duration of the build, which couldn’t have been much closer; being just 2 doors away.”

“The Constables of St Peter Port were also understanding; they agreed to a road closure of La Rue Marguerite for the duration, which allowed uninterrupted access. This was essential to the project’s success,” continued Mr Rihoy.
“This site was always an ideal location for an office development of this nature. Its juxtaposition adjacent to St James and Elizabeth College makes it an impressive, additional landmark for St. Peter Port.”
