Temple Church

Feasibility Review

Temple Church is an historically important landmark in London which dates back to 1185 and is particularly renowned for its Round (now the Nave). This feasibility project was needed to assess the suitability of various design options presented to improve access in and around the Church, particularly to the Triformium, with additional facilities being located within the existing roof space. The existing and historic nature of the building presented several immediate challenges for the proposed options, all of which were discussed and presented with their own limitations in order for the client and design team to make informed decisions, and to adopt the most effective solution to improving accessibility and provision, with the least amount of physical intervention.

The Victoria Ironworks, Derby

Initial Design Review

This was followed by a design review to determine the best approach to satisfy requirements of building regulations, and fire compartmentation mark ups produced to summarise key fire safety aspects and recommended design changes to assist the design team and client with progressing the design.
