Lucas’s Heritage experience boosted by new hire
Lucas’s considerable experience in completing major historic refurbishments is now boosted with the launch of a specialist Lucas Heritage unit headed by new hire Peter Hare, Director of Heritage.
Peter is a specialist consultant in conservation, decoration and the decorative arts, with a wealth of experience spanning over 30 years on major heritage projects. He directed the gilding and arts team on the royal barge “Gloriana” that led the Thames flotilla for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
He was also responsible for the restoration of several state rooms following the horrific fire at Windsor Castle, at St Paul’s Cathedral, and at the highly acclaimed Spencer House in St James’s, still considered by many to be the finest post-war restoration in Britain.
Lucas has played a central role in many important heritage refurbishments over the years including the Cutty Sark, the Guildhall in the City of London, the Savoy Hotel, the Café Royal, and the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-on-Avon.
We are currently refurbishing important historic sections of Battersea Power Station as part of the major redevelopment underway.
Danny Lucas said: “Peter’s extraordinary portfolio aligns him with the industry’s most influential professionals of the modern era and will allow us to expand our heritage offering to both existing and new clients. We welcome him on board.”
