Peregrine Bryant has been working on historic buildings for decades and in 2014 was asked to undertake some work to assess opportunities to make the most of Stationers' Hall.

During October 2020 the task of packing up the office was added to the many duties and responsibilities of those who work at Stationers’ Hall.
