|Local Architects on Shortlist to Design New Scotland Yard|
Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands will compete with four other top practices
Local architectural practice Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands is among the teams shortlisted to design the replacement for Scotland Yard.
The practice, which is based in St Peter's Square on the borders of Hammersmith and Chiswick is one of five now competing to design the new HQ for the Metropolitan Police Service on Victoria Embankment.
The others are Foster and Partners, Keith Williams Architects and two other practices with local connections - Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, which has designed the masterplan for the redevelopment of BBC Television Centre in Shepherd's Bush and Allies and Morrison, which has designed the planned northern extension of Westfield Shopping Centre.
Roger Harding, MPS - Director of Real Estate Development, says: "The competition generated considerable interest with the chance to create a new landmark building for London. We would like to offer our sincere thanks to the world class field of national and international award-winning practices who submitted expressions of interest.
"The selection process was exceptionally difficult but we are delighted to have five such high quality architects on our shortlist for this important building.
" We look forward to seeing a winning design that respects the history of the building whilst reflecting the MPS need to modernise our estate."
