Arup to refurbish Southbank Centre

Southbank Centre has this week appointed consultant Arup to manage the refurbishment of its Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery complex in London.

The consultant will also provide structural engineering services for the project. The project will provide better access, upgrade the stages, galleries and back stage areas, and fix worn out services.

It is intended to bring the performance areas up to the same standard as the Royal Festival Hall, which was refurbished in 2007.

Arup worked on the original designs for the Southbank Centre in the 1960s.

Project Director Dan Cossins said that Arup was “delighted” to be involved in the project.
