Willmott Dixon Interiors are transforming the world famous Old Admirality Building into a new home for The Department for Education. 

Most recently occupied by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Old Admiralty Building has housed some of the most famous figures in history, including former Prime Minister Winston Churchill when he was First Lord of the Admiralty, and James Bond author - and former naval intelligence officer - Ian Fleming, whose renowned ‘Room 39’ was located inside the walls during World War II.

The project will see our team transform  Old Admiralty into a modern working environment, including upgrading the building services to introduce new mechanical ventilation and environmental controls, plus future proofing space for government offices in the long-term.

During the tour visitors can see the following construction and fit out activities take place. 

-Enabling works  in the ground floor and lower ground floor areas

   Mechanical & Electrical Installation works

   Secondary glazing installation

   Plastering, including heritage plaster cornice repair
