The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) have refurbished the grade II listed property that was designed by George Gilbert Scott’s practice and built in 1882.

Working with project managers Gardiner & Theobald and Black Architecture, the institution oversaw a radical redesign of the building, whilst keeping costs and carbon footprint to a minimum.

To optimise use of space, the internal structure has been extensively remodelled by opening up with a new feature staircase added.

Despite the mechanical and electrical subcontractor and main contractor (Killby & Gayford) going into administration during the contract, and some challenging construction issues, the team worked with Gardiner & Theobald Construction Management to successfully complete the project.
