Project Manager:

MNP were appointed as structural engineers at Bridge Master's House and its associated service yard and welfare buildings, adjacent to the most famous bridge in the world. The City of London Corporation were granted planning permission to refurbish the exhibition space, enhance facilities for the Bridge Master’s team and to add a new, glass-roofed restaurant with views of the bridge and the river Thames.  Additional permission was sought to convert the reservoir under the building into a wine bar.  The reservoir was originally used to store the water that powered the steam engines to lift the bridge. 

We surveyed the Grade II listed Bridge Master's House and the vaulted reservoir, designed sensitive modifications to the existing structure and the new structural glass roof for the restaurant and public areas.

MNP were novated to Willmott Dixon Construction along with Ellis Williams Architects to successfully deliver the project.  This project was designed and delivered by MNP’s team of specialist conservation engineers.
