CASE STUDY

Harrods façade

Harrods façade

Project:

Harrods façade

Client:

Harrods

Contractor:

Stonewest

Contract value:

Confidential

Programme:

5 months

Services:

We made repairs to windows and joinery and redecorated the external façade of the prestigious Harrods department store in Knightsbridge. We also recreated the curved wooden moulded panels over the east and west public doors, along with the wooden boxing to the whole of the front of the Knightsbridge elevation. Windowcare products were heavily used as a recognised repair method for traditional sash and casement windows.

Challenges:

To meet critical deadlines, we had to carry out the repairs and decoration work in the evening and at weekends. Working over one of the busiest streets in London, it was essential we followed strict Health & Safety guidelines to protect shoppers and pedestrians.

Results:

We completed the project on time and achieved very satisfying results. Our efforts to minimise disruption during trading hours meant that the public were unaware of the works being carried out overhead.

Feedback:

"Leon and the team produced a very high quality product within a tight schedule, and worked around difficult scaffolding phases. The result was exceptional and I would say that AC Beck are a long term and valuable partner in our comprehensive supply chain. The results are there for all to see."
