Milton Court is a 285 unit residential tower with club facilities. The lower floors house new state-of-the art facilities for the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, which include a 608-seat concert hall, 227-seat theatre, a studio, three rehearsal rooms and a television studio suite.

The vast majority of the 285 apartments command dramatic views of the City’s skyline. The tenants can enjoy both the residents' bar and the garden terrace located on the 6th floor.

Our role

The City of London’s District Surveyors supplied advice and building control services from the application stage through to completion of works. Many of the services were commissioned throughout the project with our Public Health and Mechanical and Electrical Surveyors regularly visiting site to witness testing. The structure and the building's cladding were regularly inspected by our experienced Surveyors during their frequent inspections of construction, led by David Withington who has been with the project since conception. David and his team took an active part in the Part E sound insulation testing as they did with the Part L air permeability and pressure testing.

Our dedicated multi-disciplinary team of experienced Building Control officers are ideally sited within the City of London and their flexibility meant they could work around the hive of construction activity that was taking place.

If you are contemplating constructing a new residential building or undertaking alterations to an existing building, we are happy to assist you with any Building Regulation queries you may have and offer free pre-application advice. Please call 020 7332 1000 or email the District Surveyor's Office.
