ECS annual John Delafons lecture

For the first time, our annual John Delafons lecture this year was held as a virtual event. The subject was the Thames Tideway Project given by Harbinder Birdi, Senior Partner and Head of the Infrastructure and Transport Sector at Hawkins Brown architects. If you missed it, it is now available to view on our YouTube channel.

The future of heritage buildings in Gunnersbury Park

The recent restoration of a number of buildings in Gunnersbury Park, such as the Large Mansion and its transformation into a modern museum, excluded several other important heritage buildings in the park, in particular the Small Mansion and Stables Block, both of which are on the Historic England buildings at risk register.

For more information, and a link to a questionnaire on the future of these buildings, see an article on the Ealing Today site.
