The Tate Modern Project is a major extension to the South West corner of the Tate Modern. The new structure has been designed by Herzog and De Meuron.

The extension will provide 22,000m2 of additional space for Tate Modern. This will include new permanent and temporary exhibition galleries, retail, catering, education and office space.

Scudder Demolition were awarded the enabling works package to facilitate the construction of various new structural elements within the Turbine Hall in order to provide connectivity between the new and the old Tate Modern buildings.

The scope of works included the provision of access decks, protection, acoustic screens, specialist concrete and brickwork cutting, structural steel work, specialist glazing adaptations and the construction of new structural floor slabs.

The gallery remained open during the work and Scudder worked closely with the client to preserve their visitors’ experience.
