Praise for our work
As part of the £5.5m conversion of a Grade II listed former Granada Cinema in Clapham into a church for the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, we were commissioned to refurbish Art Deco styled light fittings including a large chandlier that hangs in the auditorium and forms the centrepiece of the church.
We also manufactured a further twenty ceiling lights in the same style for the church’s public areas . The work was informed by archive photography from the 1930’s during the cinema’s heyday and our own archive materials. The refurbishment work was undertaken at our specialist
London facilities where our technical and design team brought to bear a range of skills to replace white opal glass panels, painstakingly repair metalwork and replace the finials’ gold finish.
All of the fittings were wired with low energy, high frequency lamps and a number of fixtures included emergency lighting within.
Jeremy Quantrill, joint managing director comments: “This heritage building has been used for a variety of purposes, latterly as a bingo hall. It is great to have been able to help recreate this piece of London’s history and take it back to its glorious past.”
