Originally established in 597AD, the Cathedral and its precincts are both an important Place of Worship and a major part of a World Heritage Site. As the inspecting architects, we have been conserving the fabric of this magnificent building for over twenty years.
Purcell were appointed and continue to conserve and refurbish the external fabric and internal spaces at the Elizabeth Tower. The iconic building is part of the wider Palace of Westminster sitting adjacent to the capital's River Thames.
Purcell is responsible for the restoration and refurbishment of the iconic British palace including overseeing the ten-year rolling programme of repairs to all cast iron roofs at the palace, conserving and restoring the bronze windows and supporting the design team and contractors to ensure that upgrades are sensitive to the historic fabric.
Purcell has led the delivery of an extensive programme of restoration works at this significant World Heritage site, drawing on all our core disciplines in Architecture, Masterplanning and Heritage Consultancy. This includes a world-class exhibition experience and sustainable upgrades throughout the historic building's estate.
Having won the international design competition, Purcell is delighted to be assisting St Mary Redcliffe in the creation of new welcome facilities.
