We were proud to provide Party Wall and Neighbourly advice to this award-winning project at the British Museum which included the demolition of a 1970’s building to make way for a new World Convention and Exhibition Centre for the museum.
Construction work impacting the Party Walls at the British Museum consisted of 480 contiguous piles around the perimeter of the site, anchor piling and the installation of 16,000 hand-case kiln-formed glass planks.
Over 70% of the Centre’s 18,000 sqm floor space is underground, so the construction team excavated 19m below ground to make way for this.
The Centre won the RICS Best Building Award 2015 for tourism and leisure and the RIBA London Award 2017.
We were enlisted to provide Party Wall advice for this site that is surrounded by seven listed buildings for whom the Museum is freeholder.
