Method Consulting staff provided building services engineering design services for the comprehensive refurbishment & remodelling of this Wren designed Grade I listed building housing the Chelsea Pensioners.

The refurbishment took place across four main blocks in three phases with the whilst the hospital remaining open throughout. 

This was a prestigious conservation project where the engineers worked closely with the architect, Peregrine Bryant, to ensure that all refurbishment work was in line with English Heritage and other conservation guidelines. Attention to detail and coordination with the design team was essential to ensure that the mechanical and electrical design was appropriate and sympathetic in terms of style and concealment of services and our experience in conservation of historic buildings allowed us to ensure this is the case.

We were subsequently appointed to work on the refurbishment and remodeling of the Grade II* listed Soane Stable Block .
