Prestigious restoration with Powell Williams

The residence of the High Commissioner of India in London is receiving special attention from Powell Williams' historic buildings team, who have been appointed to manage external refurbishment of this stunning Georgian building in Kensington Palace Gardens.

One of the most exclusive addresses in the country, Kensington Palace Gardens is owned by the Crown Estate. The Indian High Commissioner's residence is a Grade II listed building, so all internal and external works are subject to strict guidelines.

Powell Williams is managing the £70,000 project on behalf of the Indian government, which leases the property from the Crown Estate. More than 150 litres of Regent's Park Cream Gloss paint - the specific shade used for all Crown Estate Properties - will be applied to the 2,500 sq ft property during the six-week contract, which is to be carried out by specialist heritage contractor, Isis Restoration.

Powell Williams has completed a number of heritage restoration projects, including those involving liaison with conservation officers, English Heritage, and contractors, for Grade II listed buildings in Chester, Bath, York, Shrewsbury and Edinburgh.

If you have a project with historical significance that requires specialist expertise please contact Darren Ward in our London office on 02072566907.
