Historic England Offices – Tanner Row, York

37 Tanner Row in the centre of the City of York dates back to circa 1850, is Grade II listed and is currently the Yorkshire regional office of Historic England formally English Heritage.

The fire prevention works included realignment of partitions, replacement fire doors, installation of smoke curtains, an automatic smoke vent above the stair, improved intumescent fire-stops and upgrading the alarm to a fire detection system. The whole building was redecorated internally including walls, ceilings and woodwork and flooring replaced throughout.

Due to the size of the new automated conservation roof light, it had to be craned into place. The works were carried out whilst the offices remained in operation and occupied by Historic England’s employees.
