Royal College of Music Courtyard Infill Project - Regional Building Control

Royal College of Music Courtyard Infill Project

South Kensington, London

RBC have been appointed by John Simpson Architects to provide full Building Control services for the prestigious commission to redesign the Royal College of Music in South Kensington.  The project is valued at £25 million and will transform the Grade II Listed Building.  The project involves basement, sub-basement, lower ground, first and second floor extensions in a former courtyard that links part of the Royal College of Music together and form a new museum, bar, cafes, two new theatres and practice rooms.  The effects on the existing fire compartmentation and means of escape needed careful consideration and justification and RBC have worked closely with the Architects, JSA, and the Fire Engineer to achieve this.

Works on site are being carried out by Northern Ireland Contractors, Gilbert Ash, and have now reached shell stage on site.  Construction is progressing well, despite the limited access nature of the land-locked site meaning all building materials, including the central courtyard tower crane, and as dug materials, have to be taken in and out over the roof of the six storey Listed Building.
