Role: Project Manager & Employer’s Agent | Client: Diageo Pension Trust & Parlison Properties | Location: London
A complex and medium-term redevelopment of an industrial estate to replace a proportion of the existing stock with new improved units and to refresh the remainder of the estate with new cladding treatments to bring more cohesion and cache to the estate.

Works are due to commence late 2016 and span a number of years.

Cullum Welch House, Golden Lane Estate
Role: Architects | Client: City of London Corporation | Location: Barbican, London
We are engaged as architects in a programme of remedial works to this listed building within the Barbican Estate. Along with several other buildings in the area, issues have arisen with the integrity of the precast concrete panels in the façade, which now require replacement due to significant spalling. Working alongside the consultant engineers and specialist concrete & corrosion consultants, we are designing the replacement remedial work, which are expected to be carried out in 2017.
London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
Role: Architects, Project Managers, Contract Administrators | Client: London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
Location: Bloomsbury, London
Retained as architects, we were responsible for several alterations and refurbishment projects to the School's listed building over a period of years. A hard won listed building consent allowed much improved accessibility via the grand main entrance on Keppel Street. We brought together Camden Council, the School, a specialist conservation architect and stone contractor to solve a long running dilemma of how to improve access to the building whilst retaining its special architectural character.
We have also undertaken a number of internal projects including the integration of modern services into the fabric of the building, alterations to teaching rooms and labs, and the renovation of the main washrooms.
