Client Cadogan Estates Ltd
Role CDM Co-ordinator
Project Demolition and refurbishment of existing buildings
Site London
Value £60m


The Duke of York's Headquarters site occupies approximately 4 hectares and is situated in the North East corner of the Royal Hospital Conservation Area, bounded by the Kings Road to the North West, with Sloane Street underground station to the North East.

The redevelopment provides a mixture of office, retail and residential accommodation together with the retention, renovation and conversion of Cadogan Hall and The Chapel building.

Queripel House was demolished with the exception of the north eastern facade facing the public square which was retained and restored. A new three storey building was constructed behind the facade comprising retail and commercial units.

A significant aspect of the redevelopment is the creation of a new area of open public space which provides a vibrant, animated but flexible public space for sitting and informal recreation, as well as market stalls and events.

Set in this public square is the highly transparent lightweight glass Cafe building designed as an integral part of the new square.
