Our Special Projects team has been appointed by The Inner Temple as the main contractor for Project Pegasus, the multi-million pound redevelopment and refurbishment of its Treasury building, library and hall.
Administering educational activities for school students, undergraduates, student barristers, pupils and practising barristers, The Inner Temple is one of the four Inns of Court, the legal societies with the exclusive right to call people to the Bar.
The Temple area of the City is more than 800 years old and has been the home of barristers for more than 600 years.
With work set to take place in such a historically sensitive area of London, our specialist experience of prestigious and heritage buildings was key to our selection by the Inn.
Special Projects Operations Director, Michael Coleman, said:
“We understand the historic significance of this project for the Inner Temple. We’re delighted to be the appointed contractor for Project Pegasus and will use our specialist skills, built on years of experience of other historic projects, to partner the Inn in the delivery of a facility that meets the Inn’s brief and the demands of modern legal education.”
Project Pegasus is planned to start in May/June 2019 and to be completed in 2021. The project will transform the Inner Temple to ensure it delivers on its educational mission by the creation of modern purpose-built educational facilities, including a lecture theatre and training rooms, to match the world-class training which it already delivers.
The project will also provide the opportunity for extensive modernisation and upgrading to its hall and Treasury building for the first time since the reconstruction after damage sustained during the Second World War.
The redevelopment, designed by Hugh Broughton Architects and project managed by Bradbrook, will refocus the use of the whole building and create a new fourth floor with a glazed roof light creating a bright and welcoming space.
The redevelopment will make the most of views over the Inner Temple Garden, one of the largest open spaces in the City.
