The City of London School for Girls charts its history back to 1894. However, it was in 1969 that it moved to its current home in the Barbican, designed by architects Chamberlin, Powell and Bon. The Barbican Estate was granted Grade II status in 2001.

After almost 50 years of service, the huge bespoke teak casement windows needed substantial maintenance. The City of London appointed TRC to undertake a comprehensive refurbishment programme.

Having erected full scaffolding, and using specialist lifting equipment, we removed the windows, which ranged from two to three metres wide.

Timberwork was repaired, then stripped and French polished on internal and external sides. The windows were reglazed with solar control glass, and the secondary glazing was refurbished. Hinge mechanisms were overhauled, and ironmongery and blinds were replaced.

The work was completed in two 10-week phases, to coincide with summer holidays. Despite the tight timescale, the project was finished on time and on budget.
