Big Parks Peacehaven
The Big Parks Project is a community led project to create a new recreation destination in Peacehaven, East Sussex. It is a highly sustainable project designed for all sections of the community, including a central activity café, children’s playgrounds, new cycle paths, skate park, and sports facilities. The park adjoins the South Downs National Park and provides a gateway to exploring the wider countryside. An in-depth consultation was carried out with the local community to ensure their priorities for Big Parks Project were identified and delivered.
Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund this unique project saw a transformation of the Brookland site, restoring the original banked circuit finishing straight and providing new display space for the historic aircraft collection.
The clients brief was met through the careful dismantling of the listed Bellman Hanger and reconstructing it in a new location to open up the historic Finishing Straight, which was re-opened by Lord March at the Double Twelve Motorsport Festival on the 17th June 2017, 110 years to the day since the Brooklands Race Track first opened. The restored Finishing Straight, a Scheduled Monument, now connects the famous Clubhouse and Banked Circuit for the first time in 75 years.
4 Pancras Square
Providing circa 177,000sq ft of office accommodation, our recently completed fit-out at Eric Parry Architects RIBA award winning 4 Pancras Square is enabling our client, a globally recognised media company to relocate its 1,000 strong workforce along with a number of sister companies to this growing vibrant corner of London.
Over the last decade we have undertaken numerous projects across the colleges various London campuses. Projects have been diverse both in complexity and type, ranging from major new complex laboratory buildings to the renovation of existing facilities for new lecture theatres.

Chafford Hundred Campus
Chafford Hundred Campus; was conceived as an all age learning campus, containing nursery, primary and secondary schools on the same site sharing a central block of facilities, with the primary and secondary teaching wings extending from the central shared facilities.
Working alongside architects Nicholas Hare for the provision of Civil, Structural and MEP Engineering we adopted an inventive low energy design for the engineering services. Our design includes ventilation stacks to the rear of deep plan classrooms providing natural ventilation and exposed thermal mass provides night cooling, helping to maintain comfortable conditions during summer days.
The former historic home of Arsenal Football Club, the Highbury Square Development created 650 studio, 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartments constructed around the four sides of the old pitch which itself is turned into a wonderful garden area.
Responsible for the detailed MEP engineering design the scheme incorporated some of the most up to date thinking to reduce carbon emissions, including the largest solar thermal heating installation of its type in Europe together with combined heat and power (CHP) plant feeding into a district heating system which serves the whole development.
