Artelia project managed the repair and restoration of six Grade II listed structures, including a number of the iconic codebreaker huts, three of which were at significant risk of collapse.
The restoration project has restored the buildings to their former World War II appearance, with a series of thematic narrative zones created to tell the story of the amazing codebreaking which took place, and the birth of the world’s first working electronic computer ‘Colossus’.
Layout and accessibility of the site has been improved to accommodate a significant increase in visitors per annum. The 18th of June marked the official reopening of Bletchley Park by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, who paid tribute to her grandmother who worked there during World War II.
The project has won a number of awards:
RICS South East Awards Project of the Year
Best Public Service Building for the Block C Visitor Centre at LABC Awards (Central)
Constructing Excellence London and South East Awards Project of the Year
Best Attraction for Groups at the Group Travel Awards
