The Queen’s House, Greenwich
We have recently been commissioned to undertake a detailed structural fabric and condition survey of the Queens House, Greenwich for the National Maritime Museum.
Designed by Inigo Jones, the building represents a turning point in the history of British architecture as the first classical renaissance building in the country. Our work will include researching ‘lost’ archive material alongside a ‘fingertip’ survey, a digital measured drawings survey and non-invasive radar survey to reconstruct the building chronology to inform its future management. The survey has already rediscovered not only the extent of Second World War incendiary damage but also significant (but well concealed) decay of 1930s remedial work.
