As part of the phased re-construction to the largest Mosque in Western Europe, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association commissioned the new Main Entrance Building in 2018.
Comprising over 5,500 m2 of mixed usage space to accommodate conventions, offices and residential space the new Main Entrance Building will be the prominent face of the Baitul Futuh Mosque. ATC has worked closely with the Client from the outset and this new building replaces the original fire-damaged structure, for which ATC also provided cost consultancy and were instrumental in the final insurance settlement.
Befitting of this building’s prestigious status by the appointed architects, John McAslan and Partners facades, the external facades are lavishly clad in Portuguese moca crème limestone across all five storeys and extensive Mashrabiya screens cover the concealed glazing. The upper levels afford clear views across to the City of London and the cantilevered steel frame ensures large spans at the ground and first floors, to ensure generous open spaces to accommodate the large meetings that take place each year, including eminent speakers such as the former prime minister.
The Main Building is part of the phased redevelopment to the front of this flagship site with the shell and core final account agreed and the fitting out works ongoing. The further phases include the security gatehouse, landscaping to the front courtyard and likely future redevelopment to the front of the site Support Block.
ATC is delighted to provide the ongoing Cost Consultancy services on this highly prestigious and unique project.
