Ralph T. King & Associates are assisting Blair Architects to develop the proposals for converting the Grade I listed building, Admiralty Arch currently offices, into a 100 bed 5/6* hotel and private members club. The building will be extended below ground to accommodate leisure areas, pool and plant rooms. To achieve a BREEAM “rating of excellent” the building services will utilise the existing Whitehall district heating system, improve the insulation values of the existing fabric, where possible, and provide CHP for the summer domestic water and pool heating. Energy efficient lighting and photovoltaic systems are also incorporated.
