Tate Britain

We have provided structural engineering and conservation support to Tate Britain for a variety of projects.

For Transforming Tate Britain we prepared a Conservation Plan to inform the development of Caruso St John’s proposals for Henry Tate’s much altered and extended 1897 Gallery.  A particular engineering challenge was the new feature staircase in the central octagon, to improve circulation and visual connectivity.

We have also provided structural advice for many – often unusual – installations, from Fiona Banner’s Harrier Jet to Monster Chetwynd’s Christmas decoration of the entrance portico.
