Central Hall Roof Refurbishment, The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London
Part of a series of ongoing roof refurbishment projects, the Central Hall was clad with one of the oldest roof fabric systems. An extensive roof access steel walkway obscured much of the high level roof and prevented sensible maintenance and cleaning. Our role was to prepare architectural and structural designs for the new roof membrane and reconfigured access systems, allowing for an improved electrical and air handling services arrangements, and new internal lighting gantry. As well as preparing new designs we also obtained listed building consent for these complex works.
The project was completed during the spring and summer of 2021, and required extensive internal birdcage scaffold and external temporary roof, all installed to our performance specification and construction designs.
