Fascinating to look back on past projects and how the use of buildings evolves… Richmond House in Whitehall was redeveloped to create 15,000m2 of government office space. We were engaged as structural engineers for both the stabilisation and refurbishment of the Georgian terrace, including façade retention, and the construction of the new structure designed by architect, Sir William Whitfield. The redevelopment was completed in December 1987 and housed the Department of Health and Social Security. From 2025 it will be home to the House of Commons for 6 years when the Palace of Westminster is vacated for full renovation.
