Eagle Court – the new training centre for The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths – is progressing well on site. Marked by the traditional topping out ceremony, the uppermost structural point of the building has now been completed (by contractors Balfour Beatty), and the internal spaces are really starting to take shape – including those within the existing Victorian school building:
The facility – due to open in Autumn 2011 – will provide post-graduate education, business start-up studio space, business skills tuition and support for young goldsmiths, plus craft skills training to pre-apprentice silversmiths close to Hatton Garden, the traditional home of the trade in London. The development comprises a new building – predominantly clad in limestone with panels of patinated brass – and an adapted Grade Listed II Victorian School. The two distinct elements are linked by a glazed atrium. As well as the core educational facilities, the centre provides commercial workshop space, a large exhibition area, seminar space, a cafe and offices.
