Record & Restore
Gloria’s drawings record the timber sections of the existing
windows, or their remaining parts in the case of the H.1 type, to allow the
tendering subcontractors for the main works to check their details.
In the Power Hall the plaster to the Gallery has been
removed, exposing the blocked up porthole windows on the inside – and some old
cracks for Price and Myers (the structural engineers) to decide whether they
need to be stitched. Helpfully, our predecessors didn’t bother to course the
brickwork into the circular window reveals, leaving the plaster in place, which
will make it much easier to restore them.
