WHITEHALL PARADE, EAST GRINSTEAD
Architect – Cowan Architects
Principle Contractor – Mount Anvil
Project Details – This building has an interesting and tragic history. It was built in 1936 and used to house the Whitehall Palace Cinema. On 9th July 1943, the building was destroyed by two German bombs.
Inside, was an audience of 184 people, mainly children, who were watching a Hopalong Cassidy western film. A warning that a German air raid was operating came on the screen but people didn’t take much notice of it. Other bombs were dropped on neighbouring buildings. As a result, 108 people were killed and 235 seriously injured. It was apparently the largest loss of life in any air raid in Sussex.
In 2017, Whitehall Parade has kept its original white stone façade and the building houses shop units. JM Partnership (Surveyors) Ltd has been working on the conversion of an existing four storey building with a 3rd floor roof extension to form a department retail store.
The scheme has been very challenging due to the historic nature of the fabric and interior, particularly with regards to fire safety. JM Partnership (Surveyors) Ltd have worked with the design team to ensure the space is used effectively whilst meeting the functional requirements of the fire guidance.
