What’s behind the scaffolding?

Works are progressing at our Regent Street project. Jerram Falkus are undertaking refurbishment and restoration works on this Grade II Listed Building – 309 Regent Street, University of Westminster.

The brightly coloured scaffolding is in place adding a touch of sunshine even on a cloudy day.

What’s behind that scaffolding?

The scaffolding is up which will enable safe and secure access for roof repairs.

There is some fabulous lead work which will be restored and you really get a feel for the craftsmanship which put this Victorian roof together.

As this is a Grade II listed building extra care has to be given to make sure that materials used are appropriate to this sensitive setting. Many of the Westmoreland stone tiles need replacing and these will be replaced like-for-like. Even the bricks are carefully considered.

On the rooftops of London – Cor! What a sight!

So sung a certain chimney sweep.

On top of this being a prestigious and well-managed project, there are some pretty great views to be had!

The site is located a stone’s throw from other historic landmarks such as All Souls Langham Place, the BBC, Cavendish Square and the Langham Hotel. With stunning views spanning across the capital it really was a privilege to see behind the scaffolding.
