Stoneworks are now coming to an end on the Strand terrace and elevation refurbishment project at Kings College London.
Scaffolding was struck on the Temple Place elevation overlooking the Thames this week. The Grade I listed building has received Doff cleaning, repairs to the Palladian Portland stone façade and been completed with repaired and redecorated timber sash windows.
Prior to commencing, all of the windows had metal nibs removed. These were the remnants of guard railings, removed during WWII as part of the drive to gather as much spare metal to be melted for munitions as possible. This was typical across London, with many railings still not replaced to this day
