A £5m project has restored Kew Palace in west London to its condition in the early 19th century, when its served as the palace of George III. Brickwork was made good, finished in a lime wash and tinted red with brick dust. Internally, repairs and conservation were carried out to lime plaster and joinery, and period furniture added.
One of the few modern additions was a disabled lift, which was installed in a steel shaft at the side of the building where a privy shaft originally stood. Gardiner & Theobald was construction and cost manager on behalf of Historic Royal Palaces. Purcell Miller & Tritton was the architect, Cameron Taylor the structural engineer and Chapman Bathurst the services engineer.
