York Guildhall

Client: City of York Council
Builder: VINCI Construction
Architect: Burrell Foley Fischer 

The Guildhall complex is owned by City of York Council and is made up of Grade I, II* and II listed buildings built around the 15th-century Guildhall. 

The remodelling of the venue supports and nurtures the expansion of York’s vibrant creative businesses. The facility is adaptable for events and exhibition space with state-of-the-art collaboration and co-working facilities. Best practice conservation and sustainability principles have
been adopted such as a water source heat pump utilising energy from the River Ouse.

The refurbishment secures an economically viable and sustainable future for the buildings in the heart
of an historic and creative city.
