The world famous grade II listed Old Admiralty Building will be transformed into the new home for a Government department, providing office space for 2,400 people.

Procured under Scape Group’s National Major Works framework, we have combined our construction and interiors specialists to deliver the project. It follows our recent transformation of the Grade II listed Commonwealth Institute in Kensington into the new home for the Design Museum.

Most recently occupied by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Old Admiralty Building has housed some of the most famous figures in history, including former Prime Minister Winston Churchill when he was First Lord of the Admiralty, and James Bond author - and former naval intelligence officer - Ian Fleming, whose renowned ‘Room 39’ was located inside the walls during World War II.

The project will see our team transform 23,000 m² of space at the Old Admiralty into a modern working environment, including upgrading the building services to introduce new mechanical ventilation and environmental controls, plus future proofing space for Government offices in the long-term.
