Battersea Power Station

Client: BPS

Originally built in the 1930’s to the design of Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, this iconic London Landmark is formed of brickwork around a steel girder making it the largest brick building in Europe. The Power Station was decommissioned between 1975 and 1983 and then up until 2014 was left abandoned, empty and unused. It gained Grade II listed building status in 1980, was declared a heritage site and then this was upgraded to II* in 2007.

 

PAYE’s contracted works centre around the matching of mortar, bricks blends (of which there are three – reflecting the differing periods the station was built) and the repair and replacement of the steel structure. Despite currently being the largest building site in London, the other major challenge is the limited amount of space available, requiring major logistical coordination.
