Placed 51st in the Placebook vote of favourite buildings by BDP
BDP's involvement, now into its third decade, has ensured London's most distinctive venue is fit for entertainment in the twenty-first century, Bob Stagg is proud to have been involved:
From Led Zeppelin in 1968 to PJ Harvey earlier this week, the Hall has always been a magical place for me personally and BDP’s major refurbishment and huge extension of “back of house” facilities has ensured that this genuine icon remains in successful use for all to properly enjoy a “performance” rather than the remote, cold, dead experience of watching a video screen several hundred meters away at the O2 and the like.
Bob says: "Bob Stagg is a simple structural engineer who worked for BDP on the Hall and continues to do so with his current company Conisbee, so he is clearly biased. Still, he tries his best."
