The Office

London is where Pell Frischmann began 90 years ago and peppered throughout the capital are buildings that we have designed. Our head office in London's west-end is still the base from which we carry out much of our national and international work.

Recent structural projects in London include the new Kingsgate House and Zig Zag Building as part of Land Securities regeneration of London's Victoria; the recently completed Blavatnik School of Government for the University of Oxford, working with Herzog and de Meuron Architects and the new Centre for Children's Disease Research for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

We also carry out work in a range of other sectors, including traffic and transportation, rail, highways and infrastructure planning. We are very busy with Transport for London, HS1 and various private developers for major London sites.
