Lucas highly commended at the Premier Trophy Awards 2014
Lucas has been highly commended at the Painting & Decorating Association’s prestigious Premier Trophy Awards 2014 in the Commercial Category.
It was our careful restoration and decorating programme at the historic Café Royal in Central London that impressed the judges this year.
In the past we have been highly commended for painting projects at the McLaren Production Centre where the F1 company produces its high performance sports cars, and at the Grand Hall in the Olympia exhibition and conference centre.
We completed a very careful cleaning, refurbishment and redecoration programme on an intricate seven-storey helical staircase rising up through the full height of the Café Royal. The work was carried out for the construction manager Mace under the watchful eye of English Heritage.
We also had to repair and strengthen plasterwork above the stairs and we carried out a major refurbishment and redecoration of the feature luxury Dome Suite at the top of the building.
The work was completed within strict time constraints and often under difficult access conditions, so gaining back several weeks for the main project schedule was a considerable achievement.
The commendation at this year’s PDA award caps a magnificent few months for Lucas because we have also won significant and highly competitive awards organised by both Construction News and Building Magazine. The construction industry clearly recognises Lucas’s determination to provide the highest level of service to our clients.
Lucas has a winning team.
