New Scotland Yard officially opened by Her Majesty the Queen

Her Majesty The Queen, accompanied by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, opened New Scotland Yard on 13 July. Though the Metropolitan Police have been working in their new home on the Embankment since the beginning of this year, the event marked the official opening of the new headquarters with the unveiling of a special plaque and new coat of arms, and was attended by the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Cressida Dick, and other members of the Met and London’s emergency services, as well as Paul Monaghan on behalf of the AHMM project team. New Scotland Yard has won a RIBA National Award and is currently shortlisted for BCI, AJ Retrofit and World Architecture Festival awards.
