Main Contractor:

Portland Stone:

Scope of Project:
Refurbishment of Portland Stone Façades and installation of new stonework

41 Lothbury is part of the cluster of historic buildings at the heart of London's Square Mile that symbolise the essence of the City as a global financial institution.

The building is a Grade II listed former bank headquarters, just a stone’s throw from the Bank of England.

Modern yet discreet additions have been made to the retained elevations. These improve the building's office space and circulation.

The refurbishment of the Portland stone façades and the impressive marble-clad banking hall give a new lease of life to the fabric of the building.

The project, designed by GMW Architects, included the installation of new stonework, all necessary insulation, damp proofing, support steel work, fixtures and fittings. Adaptations to existing stonework, stonework cleaning and repairs were also undertaken.
