St Martin-in-the-Fields

Working with Eric Parry Architects, we have applied a comprehensive range of our skills to one of the most complex and ambitious projects ever undertaken at a parish church – acting as engineers for the restoration of the listed Grade I church, the refurbishment of John Nash’s Parochial Buildings and the construction of a new double basement beneath the churchyard between the two, as well as developing movement strategies for the surrounding area and preparing the conservation strategy and the successful Heritage Lottery Fund application for the £34m scheme.

The new basement – entered from a unique load-bearing glass pavilion – provides space for visitors, a new church hall and facilities to support the diverse functions within the church and crypt; its construction on a highly contained site over the Northern Line and between listed buildings presented considerable challenges.
