Our opening article explores the redevelopment of Lutyens House and our work to create office space that meets the demands of the modern City workspace but respects the building's tradition.

We ensured careful retention of the facades and important original internal features, and delivered an open plan space surrounding a new atrium that has been opened up beneath a new mansard roof, with the whole redevelopment serviced for high technology needs.

We move on to look at 10 years of Arup Acoustics. Alongside a short summary of key events, we look at three different projects in more detail: the railway vibration isolation at Birmingham International Convention Centre, environmental noise assessment at the Wytch Farm Oilfield development in Dorset and the acoustic consultancy for Phase 1 of Alexandra Palace's restoration.

We also look at a scheme to add natural ventilation to a 1950s shopping centre in Epsom, the design of foundations for a new shopping centre in Kingston-upon-Hull, and explore the methods employed in three projects to maintain water levels in marinas and harbours.
