Somerset House, London

Conservation Plan

The Edwards Hart team have been busy analysing this central London landmark of nearly seven acres and developing a plan that will optimise its management on a everyday basis taking full account of its heritage values. Its significance has been assessed along with an assessment of how significance can be at risk or be vulnerable in all different ways ranging from everyday use to the impact of climate change. Following the policies in the Plan should ensure that everyday use is better informed, along with any interventions ranging from the stone masonry conservation to energy efficiency improvements through retrofit. The final draft is currently being worked on this summer and then consultation will begin.  Somerset House is featured in many of the training courses we deliver, and details can be found here.
