The Hippodrome Casino London is located in the heart of the capital’s theatre land, just off Leicester Square.
This Grade II listed building was originally opened in 1900 as a circus variety theatre. During its 100 years and various reincarnations, it has featured a host of major stars and staged the first ever performance of Swan Lake.
In 2009, work began on a £40 million project to rebuild and renovate this landmark building into The Hippodrome Casino and it opened its doors on July 13, 2012.
Tenos was required to deliver a complex fire safety engineering strategy for the redevelopment and refurbishment of this Grade II listed building.
Tenos developed a fire safety engineering strategy to achieve statutory approval without impacting on the building’s listed status; our client’s design aspirations or the building’s functionality.
Our innovative fire engineered solution also enabled the design team to overcome a number of fire safety challenges presented by this project including:
Due to the complex nature of this project, Tenos was also extensively involved in negotiations with the approving authorities.
