Our Projects: Stationers’ Hall Redevelopment
Stationers' Hall is a prestigious grade I listed building of historical architectural importance with the London Wall, a scheduled ancient monument, forming part of the structure. Built in the 17th Century, it is the third oldest Hall in the City of London, situated between Amen Court and Ludgate Hill, near St Paul’s Cathedral.
The Hall has been transformed with modern-day facilities to make it a more accessible, flexible and sustainable venue for events, high-profile occasions and visitors. The Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspaper Makers is the heart of the communications and content industry and hosts its own events for all sectors in the industry.
The works in this contract comprise the following:
- Demolition of the existing staircase core and associated rooms
- The construction of a new staircase core and associated rooms incorporating a lift that serves all floors
- Alterations and upgrade of existing kitchen including associated rooms
- Alterations to provide office facilities on the second floor
- Upgrade of existing offices under the Great Hall
- Provision of discreet air cooling to the Great Hall, Court Room, Stock Room and Card Room. These units, as well as new electrical installation and boilers, have improved the energy efficiency output by 80%.
- Associated circulation improvements, services renewal and upgrade, drainage and external works
This ambitious project has been called ‘Vision 350’ because 2023 marks the 350th anniversary of the rebuilding of Stationers’ Hall in 1673 after the original Hall was destroyed in the Great Fire of London.
The project won the silver award for the best refurbished venue in 2022 at the London Venue and Catering awards.
