Lansdowne worked on this project for not only the main contractor Bray&Slaughter, but also the architectural and framework steel sub-contractors.
Extensive and detailed surveys of the original (once stripped back) frame were undertaken by three of Lansdowne's surveyors, thus enabling the projects many designers and architects with plans to base their new design upon. The same team then set-out these new components over the following months.
