Royal Ballet School Royal Ballet School
The Royal Ballet School is a group of Grade I listed buildings dating from 1726 to 1990. The centrepiece is the Kings Pavilion constructed between 1726-1728 as a Royal hunting lodge. The crescent wings were added in 1801-1816 and it remained a royal residence until the 1930s. It has been occupied by the Royal Ballet School since 1954 and specialist extensions were added from 1955-1990. In 2004 Watts drew up the detailed study of restoration and repair needs followed in 2006 and 2008/9 by quinquennial- twin five year rolling maintenance programmes and in 2010 by a detailed Historic Building Pathology investigation to solve long standing water ingress problems.
Watts provided an invaluable document prepared extremely professionally. This thorough, comprehensive, indepth survey has given the Governors of The Royal Ballet School the comfort they need to understand the full state of the buildings.
