St Paul’s Cathedral, Internal Crypt & DDA Access
This contract was to assist the Cathedral in reworking areas of the Crypt to provide access to areas in line with the DDA regulations.
This included the construction of new underground ducts to re-route services, the formation of new Portland stone ramps to enable wheelchair access and the installation of new brass studs to both new and existing stone steps to demarcate the treads for the visually impaired.
- The works involved removing the existing Victorian pammet tiles, and in some cases, ledger stones, reducing the levels and forming new brickwork ducts for the re-routing of existing and housing new services.
- This element of the works was carried out under a watching brief by the Museum of London Archaeology Service.
- New concrete floor slabs were cast to levels to accommodate a new floor finish of Portland stone.
