Sloane Building - King's Library
The Sloane Building at 'The King’s Library' is situated on Hortensia Road on the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. In 1908, the Sloane Building was originally constructed as a school.
The works comprise the redevelopment and subterranean extension of the substantial building which extends to about 65,000 sq feet.
The ByrneLooby team of experts in London, provided detailed structural and conservation engineering advice for the planning application, addressing the increasingly complex Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea planning requirements. On successfully receiving planning permission, ByrneLooby were appointed as the structural engineering consultants, designing and advising on the complex works. Works on the Sloane Building are progressing, the transformation of the Kings Library including a new rooftop penthouse and a new basement is now complete. An impressive new ‘Tear Drop’ cantilever stair is among the works.
