Richard Atkins School

Location: London SW2
Client: London Borough of Lambeth
Architect: Roughton

Richard Atkins Primary School, a prime example of splendid Victorian educational establishments has recently benefited from an extensive external envelope refurbishment. Over 150 original box sash windows were nearing the end of their life span, but have been rejuvenated using the Epoxy Woodcare system, new draught seals, weight balancing and re-decoration.

With new roof coverings, insulated loft spaces, brick and stone repairs and renewal and repair of the rainwater systems, the building will look sprightly and functional for many years to come.

Hyde Park Barracks

Location: London
Client: Ministry of Defence
Architect: Bovis

Over many years Cityline have carried out numerous and varied contracts at MOD barracks throughout London. This small contract is memorable as the museum houses the splendour of the Household Cavalry uniforms, musical instruments and other regalia in all their glory.

An empty basement store has been transformed through use of modern glazing, lighting and humidity control systems.

Whitton Baptist Church

Location: Whitton TW2
Client: Whitton Baptist Church
Architect: BCH Architects

Whilst the Nave of the church has been beautifully refurbished and maintained in recent years, the reception area was sadly awaiting rescue from the fifties. The external entrance driveway and car park was looking sad and neglected.

We undertook the refurbishment of the internal reception and common areas providing remodeling of the spaces, rewiring, new heating and plumbing, plastering decorations and flooring. We also constructed a new glazed entrance foyer, providing disabled access and lighter internal spaces.

The external work included the provision of pedestrian paving, new macadam surfacing to the entrance drive and car park, lighting and signage.
