Architect appointed to replace MacCormac Jamieson Prichard, which was axed from the landmark BBC project last month.

Architect Sheppard Robson has been appointed to complete phase 2 of the BBC Broadcasting House.

Sheppard Robson will replace MacCormac Jamieson Prichard, which was axed from the project last month. Sheppard Robson will work with Bovis Lend Lease and Land Securities on the project.

Commenting on the appointment, Peter Jacobs, Bovis Lend Lease UK director - Strategic Clients, said: "We are pleased to welcome Sheppard Robson onto the team as we move into the next stage of this ground-breaking project. This will involve the incorporation of highly complex, detailed design features and the integration of cutting-edge technology and we look forward to working together with them and the BBC to complete the project."

Sheppard Robson will develop and deliver the original design by MacCormac Jamieson Prichard, and undertake the interior fit-out, to provide broadcasting headquarters for BBC Radio & Music, BBC News and BBC World Service. Phase 1 - due for completion shortly - has involved the refurbishment of the existing Grade II listed Broadcasting House building on Regent Street, London and the construction of the new Egton Wing.
