Pearl Assurance building near Peterborough was under threat

Chapman Taylor’s striking post-modern Pearl Assurance HQ has been listed after the Twentieth Century Society stepped in to see off a threat.

The building, on a pioneering business park outside Peterborough, has been given grade II status. 

The society also managed to get protection for 25 acres of landscaped grounds and grade II* listing for a war memorial which was designed by George James Frampton RA and relocated from the company’s London offices.
