Construction work begins for our new facilities at Milton Court


The construction phase of Milton Court is scheduled to take 137 weeks, with the building completed by February 2013. Since January 2010 the site has been occupied by McGee Ltd. who carried out advanced ground works, removing the existing ground floor and basement concrete slabs and providing retained wall supports to the perimeter of the site.


Designed by architects David Walker, RHWL and Arts Team, Milton Court will provide the Guildhall School with much- needed additional facilities including a 609-seat concert hall,


Heron International, the property group developing the School’s new facilities at Milton Court, have announced the appointment of Sir Robert McAlpine Ltd as the Main Contractor for the development. A major milestone in the project, this has enabled construction work to begin onsite as of 5 July 2010 with equipment in place to lay the main foundations for the building.


225-seat training theatre, a studio theatre, and additional space for teaching, office and support services. The building is part of a bigger development that includes private residential accommodation and mixes living and working spaces with the performing arts. It will put the Guildhall School at the heart of an internationally significant cultural and educational quarter, forming the hub for the School’s growing relationships with the LSO and the Barbican Centre. By 2013, the School’s facilities will at long last match the outstanding quality of its training and the success of its graduates.
