Royal Naval College

The Royal Naval College, known previously as the Royal Naval Hospital, is one of the foremost achievements of English baroque planning and design and perhaps the single finest set-piece of English architecture of any period.

The conversion of the buildings for use by the University of Greenwich as its main campus has involved continuous liaison with English heritage to ensure that repairs and new interventions are completed using appropriate materials and techniques of fabric conservation and respect the integrity of this scheduled ancient monument and World Heritage Site.

Through the twin techniques of historic research and fabric investigation it has been possible to recover some sense of the nature of the building as it was when used for naval pensioners. Particularly, a number of ward spaces have been cleared of all sub-division and restored as single spaces. Equally important have been the numerous works that have had to be done to bring the building up to current standards.
