Challenge & Solution
This project involves the fit out of the two Morelands Arcades and the Engine House to provide new laboratories, offices, meeting rooms and amenity space, including the construction of new foundations and new suspended floors within all three buildings. The architecture is sensitively designed to complement the historic building, keeping many of its original features exposed.
The history of the site makes it a unique and interesting building to work on, and one that brings its own challenges.
Our design is based on extensive research into historic drawings and record information, to unpick the various alterations that had been carried out during the life of the building. This helped us understand the make-up of the current structure, from original features to later additions.
