As well as commercial and residential redevelopment the scheme included a major transport interchange hub, linking bus and international coach services with three existing metro stations along the southern edge of the site.

The design also had to take into consideration and accommodate flood plain overflow from the River Vltava.

A new research and inspection facility for the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (now the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs).

Re-built on its original site, the 22,000 sq.ft. complex serves three functions; a veterinary crisis centre, inspection and diagnosis of indigenous fish and shellfish diseases and research, including virology, microbiology, pathology and molecular biology and biochemistry.

The building had to meet the high specifications required for a building built in a marine environment as well as within a Conservation Area.

The practice also designed and oversaw a decanting operation, to provide for the temporary operation of the facility whilst the new building was constructed.

Standing at the entrance we designed two new obelisks, one inscribed with the names of all seawater fish found in British waters, the other with all freshwater species.
