Grade II listed building housing a restaurant  that has been voted best in London, located in St Albans was proposed to alter their previous system of air-conditioning to reduce impact and harm to the historic building and its features.


The scheme had plans to remove all suspended metal cable trays, pipework and fixings and then run the new pipework concealed on the top of horizontal timber beams, with special arrangements to room 4 to be boxed discreetly at high level along the perimeter wall.


In addition to  remove all air-conditioning cassettes and rods and raise the height of each unit so that the they align with the adjacent horizontal beams.


For the air-conditioning system, the design had to consider the removal of AC-services in the future, at the end of their life-cycle to reduce harm to the historic building fabric.


F,J&B designed a strategy for the Air-Conditioning systems alterations for planning, respecting the wishes of St Albans City Council to ensure uninterrupted views of the buildings spectacular historical features, as well as keeping in mind the future plans for the site.
