24/24a Portland Place in for Planning

Our application for the refurbishment and extension of a 27,000 sqft office just around the corner from our base at the RIBA, has been submitted for planning. The radical design updates the original Victorian building with a sensitive, but modern proposal for a 21st century extension that better reflects the changing urban context brought about by it’s new neighbour, BBC Broadcasting House.

Internally the building is to undergo a comprehensive refurbishment with new services, lifts, and finishes.

Let’s hope the planners like it as much as we do!


Pentland Field School Completes

Construction of our EFA funded extension and refurbishment of Pentland Field School in Hillingdon has reached completion. The project, procured under a Design & Build contract between the Education Funding Agency and T&B Contractors was delivered against a very tight budget and programme. HA were responsible for delivery from planning through to Practical Completion.

The works comprised a new 8 classroom specialist teaching facility, refurbishment of an existing sports hall, link canopy and a Multi Use Games Area for children aged 4-19 with Special Education Needs.


London Festival of Architecture Open Studio

As part of the RIBA’s London Festival of Architecture HA opened its doors and invited members of the public to visit our studio space over the weekend. We had a great time putting together the exhibition and met lots of interesting people. If you didn’t make it, don’t worry, we’ll no doubt have even more to show next year!
