S Lucas provides a stylish finish to Art Deco building
S Lucas acted as the main contractor to provide a stylish exterior finish to an important Art Deco building in London’s Haymarket, in the heart of the West End Theatreland. The S Lucas team was appointed by Land Securities to carry out the external refurbishment and redecoration of Haymarket House over seven floors, above the famous Tiger Tiger nightclub.
We undertook extensive exterior repairs and adopted special weather-proof measures including the installation of new lead cappings to the main roof elevation and balconies along with a painted Belzona waterproof membrane and we applied a special, breathable mineral paint on the side elevations of the building. We erected a full scaffolding system around the building although our highly-skilled abseiling decorators went into action for particularly difficult tasks. The redecoration programme was completed within 14 weeks even though the team had to work through snow and icy conditions during the worst of this year’s winter weather. The offices remained occupied throughout and now those working in Haymarket House enjoy a very smart place workplace.
