Archaeological works to support a rebuild and remodel planning application for a period property in London

The development comprised retaining the facades of Nos 40-43 Fleet Street, with the rebuilding and remodelling the site behind to include a new fifth floor roof extension and a new infill from second to fourth floor levels to form connection to Mitre Court Chambers. Our focus was on agreeing and organising appropriate archaeological works, to get the site through the planning consent process and to discharge relevant conditions.
