Walter Lilly are delighted to be appointed as the main contractor for the refurbishment of the Ashley Building at The Honourable Society of the Middle Temple.
The refurbishment works will carried out across the basement-mezzanine, lower-basement and ground floors of the existing Ashley Building. Extensive structural alterations will create a new common room area including a new staircore, a café, and a meeting hub and WCs. Complete mechanical and electrical refurbishment will be carried out. Externally, the rear perron staircase will be remodelled and extended in size, and windows will be enlarged, along with careful stone restoration.
The works are solely to the lower three floors of the building, while the floors above will remain occupied and in use. Our site team are working closely with the stakeholders and building occupants to keeping them informed about the works, and noise, dust and vibration will be kept to a minimum to avoid disrupting their day to day operations.
We look forward to working in collaboration with Purcell (Architect), IKS Consulting (Cost and Project Manager), The Morton Partnership (Structural Engineer) and Integration (M&E) to deliver the project.
The Honourable Society of the Middle Temple is one of the four Inns of Court entitled to call their members to the Bar as barristers in a court of law. Although there have been lawyers in Middle Temple since the 1300s, the existing Ashley Building dates back to the 1950s when it was designed by Edward Maufe to replace the Library building destroyed in the days of the London Blitz.
