The Sekforde, Clerkenwell, London

Grade II Listed Pub refurbishment & Residential new built

The main contractor of the project, Magnificent Basement, commissioned hEAd to provide structural & project management services for the refurbishment of the existing historical pub and the erection of a 3 storey new-built to the adjacent plot.

This is a RIBA 2018 awarded project for the architectural merit - designed by Chris Dyson Architects - and the Sustainability inovative system installed using the underground streams of Clerkenwell in order to heat and cool the two adjoining buildings.

Two storey basements have been constructed in order to accommodate the extensive utility room and the kitchen below the new-built which supplies the pub. Great feature and landmark of the sustainable system is the ice-tank situated at the basement sitting area of the pub.
