We completed a £5 million contract to transform St Jude’s Church in South West London into a theological education centre. The traditional construction of this listed building involved the refurbishment and restoration of the existing church and included major alterations to the structure, forming a basement level and the creation of new upper floors.
We acted as Structural Engineers for the extensive refurbishment and restoration of the existing Church, to create the ‘St Paul’s Theological Centre at St Jude’s Courtfield Gardens’. New lecture theatres, offices and a library were created at the ‘Theological centre for London’ to rejuvenate the church into a building for teaching and learning. A room was formed to capture the knowledge of some of the UK’s best theologians and enable it to be shared with churches and colleges around the world.
The Grade II listed building underwent major alterations including expansion of the lower floor, alterations to the ground floor, creation of upper floors and adaptation of existing lightwells. The works also included specialist repairs to the external stonework and brickwork, new roof coverings and internal conservation works.
