Redeveloping a historic landmark in Coventry

Having previously worked on this project, Coventry Cathedral has been extended to meet the demands of the modern congregation. The project resolved access issues at the liturgical east end of the Cathedral and saw the addition of teaching rooms, a passenger lift and step-free access to the south of the precinct.

The works undertaken at the Cathedral also provided new and accessible WC facilities, essential storage and back of house facilities to support events, with direct access from the Cathedral Floor level. The new works complimented the existing Cathedral building, providing a sensitive transition between “old” and “new”.

The need for a redevelopment came to light as Coventry had been awarded “City of Culture 2021”. Due to the expected number of visitors during the event, the Cathedral recognised improvements that could be made within the building, for visitors and users.

The 50-year-old cultural landmark was originally designed by Sir Basil Spence and serves as a replacement for the original building that was reduced to a ruin during the Blitz of 1940. The original Grade I listed ruins remain as a derelict attraction with only the main tower remaining fully intact.
