About This Project

Safeguarding our heritage buildings

The refurbishment of Seabrook House created new commercial office premises including a series of office spaces, open workstations, meeting spaces and associated amenities suitable for legal practice.

The adoption of current day standards to unique heritage buildings is counterintuitive in exposing the architectural value of these buildings calling for unique fire safety solutions.

The tailored performance solution included the application of fire engineering principles, including a structural steel analysis which assisted in revealing the historic structural elements present in the interior of Seabrook House. This achieved the preservation of the heritage value of the building without compromising on life safety provisions for the building occupants.
