Sensitive handling of the Royal College of Nursing’s offices
When the Royal College of Nursing needed a complete structural refurbishment of its offices in London’s Cavendish Square, we worked with architects Bisset Adams and mechanical and electrical consultant The Evolution Group to answer the brief.
In the 1920s building, we made improvements to bring things up to date, but with a sympathetic attitude to the style of the structure. Over four floors, we helped create open-plan meeting areas, meeting rooms, and a library with electrically operated glazed doors opening onto the street.
As there were no drawings available, we carried out a full site inspection and audit beforehand. The works took place while the entire building was fully occupied, so we kept noisy operations and any disruption to a minimum, often working out of hours.
Due to the success of this project, we later began work at Cowdray Hall, the Royal College of Nursing’s meeting and lecture facility.
