Lucas shortlisted for the Premier Trophy Awards 2014

Lucas has once again been shortlisted for the Painting & Decorating Association’s prestigious Premier Trophy Awards in the Decoration Category.

This year our careful restoration and decorating work at the historic Café Royal in Central London has been acknowledged and will form the basis the judges’ deliberations.

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 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 by the Lucas team.

The PDA awards will be announced in June, but Lucas is delighted to have been shortlisted on other awards schemes too being organised by both Construction News and Building Magazine.
