Liberty London

The well-known Liberty store with its Tudor revival main entrance on Great Marlborough Street didn’t come about until the 1920s. Construction began in 1924 and used timber recycled from the ships HMS Hindustan and HMS Impregnable. The frontage has the same length as the Hindustan. The weathervane on top of the store bears a model of the Mayflower, the ship that brought the Pilgrims to America.

DBR were commissioned in 2020 to carry out the conservation of the Liberty facades and atriums of this iconic building. The works include the removal and refurbishment of over 1300 nr metal and leaded light windows and casements, paint removal to the render and timber surfaces and redecoration in a more breathable coating but still being faithful to the Liberty black and white colour scheme. The works also include cleaning and repair of the masonry surfaces. The 3nr atrium rooflights are also being completely refurbished and upgraded along with internal plasterwork conservation to the decorative atrium wall panels. The roof is also being repaired along with the Tudor style chimney stacks.

A new floodlighting scheme is being installed to the facades to enhance the wonderful architectural style of this major tourist attraction.

The works are due for completion in 2021.
