Constructed between Floral Street and Long Acre in London’s Covent Garden district, the Carriage Hall project will see the rejuvenation of a historic timber and cast-iron structure and insertion of a new glazed roof within an open courtyard. EOC is providing full design engineering to the skylight and facade engineering to two glazed facades inserted into the existing building.

To minimise its weight and the consequent impact on the existing structure, we have developed a carbon fibre structure with slim framing profiles supporting glazing units 3.5m wide.The environmental performance of the roof has been verified to out-perform alternative metal-framed skylight systems.
