41-42 Cadogan Place, Belgravia, London

Most, if not all of the original verandas on London’s prestigious Cadogan Place were dismantled and melted down during the second world war to help the war effort. Developments to the properties since the war have seen the verandas slowly coming back.

We were approached by Knight Build Ltd to fabricate and install a double veranda covering the balconies of adjoining properties at No. 41-42.

The new veranda needed to replicate the few remaining originals as closely as possible.

We recovered a single surviving cast iron column and spandrel from site which were used to create new patterns (moulds) to cast replicas from. Our draughtsman worked closely with our client and their architect to produce a design that incorporated a traditional structure whilst adhering to modern standards for the glazing system and supporting roof structure.
