Mary Rose Museum
Famously raised from the sea bed before a worldwide television audience of 60 million in 1982, the Tudor warship Mary Rose
has been undergoing an heroic conservation process in a temporary museum in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
Sea City Museum
The Southampton Civic Centre is being renovated and redeveloped as an integral part of the creation of the city's new cultural quarter, which includes the existing Guildhall, library and art gallery. We worked on the transformation of the Grade II* listed former magistrate's courts and police headquarters building — and its new extension pavilion — to accommodate the Sea City Museum, which focuses on the maritime history of Southampton. The museum opens on the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic
, which began its ill-fated journey from the city's port.
Working with architect Wilkinson Eyre, we provided structural, infrastructure and building services engineering for the refurbishment, conservation and new-building works.

Goldsmiths, Department of Media & Communications
The new Media & Communications building at Goldsmiths, which is part of the University of London, is a purpose-built facility on a prominent location overlooking the campus Green. The building unites two previously separate departments. Our structural, building services civil and geotechnical engineers all contributed to the project, designed by architect Stride Treglown.
The five-level steel frame structure includes a full-footprint basement. Its design had to meet a number of structural challenges, including the accommodation of a double height theatre, TV studio and lecture spaces in the basement. Our solution for these is several transfer structures, which not only provide the open floor areas needed but also allow for full utilisation of the floor plates above.
