Glaziers Hall is the perfect place to hold any party, meeting or dinner. The unique venue adjoins the historic London Bridge and Nancy’s Steps, made famous by Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist. For extra special events, space can now be hired right underneath the famous bridge itself, thanks to BSPS.
With such a coveted location, BSPS was called in as part of a major renovation to the venue to overhaul the entire structure as well as create new space.
BSPS installed a brand-new staircase and commercial kitchens, as well as making structural alterations and carrying out a refurbishment of offices and external decorations. The team also needed to reinstall the ventilation, heating, air conditioning and lighting, as well as setting up WiFi in the venue.
The basement arches, which were being used by the client as store rooms, were beautifully restored and converted into high tech, flexible event spaces, which included a wine cellar beneath the historic bridge.
As the space was under London Bridge, deliveries had to be well timed. Expert care had to be taken in the 14th-century basement. Demonstrating the historic nature of the site, the team even discovered a first-century Roman pot during the archaeological dig! The artefact now resides in the Museum of London.
