Back to Projects

Expedition Engineering worked since 2013 with Hugh Broughton Architects and The Institution of Structural Engineers on the refurbishment of a 1960’s steel frame building to form the new headquarter building, on Bastwick Street, near the Barbican in central London.

The project includes the refurbishment of the four storey building into high-quality offices, meeting spaces, library, reading room and an auditorium.

The centrepiece of the redevelopment is a new double-height entrance area with an exposed concrete feature wall supporting a finely detailed horizontal cantilever staircase in pre-cast concrete and steel, and a complimentary bridge at first floor leading to the library.

The new IStructE HQ opened its doors to members on January 5th, 2015. Watch the launch video here.
