Lights on at Lancaster House

The Long Gallery at Lancaster House is a historical and iconic location in the heart of London, and it has recently undergone a major restoration project led by the Mitie project team, on the FCDO contract.

This project incorporated a variety of tasks to ensure the longevity and preservation of the building’s architectural and artistic elements.

One of the primary tasks of the project was the design and construction of a working scaffold platform to reach the lantern, guiding, and artwork in the gallery. This was necessary to provide a safe and stable platform for the workers to inspect the integrity of the lantern and the artwork, which required careful handling and attention to detail.

In addition to the scaffold platform, the restoration project also involved repairing the lantern.

Stay tuned for further project work down the pipeline.
