British Horological Institute

View project information


The Grade II* listed Upton Hall is the home of the British Horological Institute; a library, archive, museum and residential training facility. Whilst the main building dates back to 1832, it has grown piecemeal to accommodate the needs of the BHI. Now, with funding from the Heritage Lottery, a significant restoration and remodelling project is about to commence.

We have been appointed to undertake mechanical, electrical, public health and lift services designs for the two major development areas: the stable block and the Hall’s west wing. We are also preparing an Energy Strategy, drawing on the latest energy saving solutions that are sympathetic to the building’s listed status.

The stable block will accommodate the new National Centre for Horology, including training room, student facilities, staff offices, exhibit areas and visitor facilities. In the west wing of the Hall a facility for commercial hire (functions, events, weddings etc.) will be created, along with associated catering space.

Our appointment to this project is very recent, and we will soon be carrying out thorough surveys to inform our new design services design schemes.
