Commonwealth Institute

Appointed as technical coordinator of a study to determine options for Trustees of the Commonwealth Institute, we reviewed wider site feasibility and specific heritage constraints of developing the famous post-war building. We appointed and managed detailed architectural and engineering studies to support options for the site, leading to development scenarios in order to maximise value. The Trustees subsequently sold the site to a developer so that funds could be freed up to develop a Commonwealth education centre in Cambridge.
