BUILDING  CONSERVATION
Tower of London, Jewel House 2012

 

In 2011 Historic Royal Palaces published a tender for major reconstruction works of the Jewel House Exhibition Rooms in the Waterloo Block at the Tower of London.

The winning Main Contractor appointed London Stone Conservation to carry out the re-design works both to stone interiors and exterior stone surfaces for this project.

Interior works included the installation of a wheelchair lift to provide new access to the jewel displays, and also new runs of fibre-optic cabling. These alterations required the lifting, altering and re-fitting of large areas of stone flooring.

The west entrance to the Jewel House was altered in height so that parts of the wall head required changing and repairing sympathetically.

The main entrance area was also systematically re-designed to successfully draw visitors within. The stone works accommodated a queueing system, which can be dismantled during off-season, as well as the fitting of large floodlighting to the left and right of the entrance.
