Laidlaw nears completion of £2m bespoke ironmongery project for Battersea Power Station

Laidlaw has played a key role in the delivery of the landmark Battersea Power Station development in London, designing and manufacturing £2 million of specially made architectural ironmongery.

Laidlaw’s Major Projects, a specialist division that has a proven track record of successfully completing work on landmark projects, significantly enlarged its dedicated project management team over the three years it was involved in the first phase of the £9 billion scheme.

The phase 1 development comprises 12 high-rise residential blocks to the west of the 39-acre site and Laidlaw’s team worked closely with main contractor, Carillion PLC, Simpson Haugh Architects, DRMM & three leading joinery contractors to deliver this highly complex project.

Laidlaw designed and manufactured a number of bespoke products, including entrance handle and plate sets, internal apartment lever handle sets, thumb turns, flush pull handle sets and hinges for the prestigious development. More than 80% of the products were manufactured in the UK, using specially produced dies and castings and all products were hand-finished in a bronze that was developed specifically for the Battersea Power Station project.

Managing Director Peter O'Brien said that Laidlaw paid particular attention to combining complete security and durability with high-end design, which was a priority for the Battersea Power Station Development Company.

This meant working alongside the project design team for many months to design, refine and test products to meet the stringent requirements of Secured By Design / PAS24 while retaining the required original design aesthetic.

“We are no stranger to large-scale, prestigious projects and we are proud of our record of delivering successfully on every occasion,” said Peter. “The Battersea Power Station development is a particularly large and exciting scheme to work on and we pulled out all of the stops to ensure we delivered ironmongery of the highest quality and in line with design and construction deadlines.

“Our commitment to ensuring the success of phase 1 has led us to increasing the number of dedicated project managers and they have all done an incredible job in delivering ironmongery of exceptionally high-quality. We look forward to continually developing our proposition for future phases of the scheme in association with the client.”

The Battersea project is the latest in a string of prestigious schemes that Laidlaw’s Major Projects has completed.

As Battersea phase 1 approaches handover, the Laidlaw team is now involved in the initial stages of supply to the BBC Television Centre Development at Wood Lane. This iconic structure demands high quality bespoke design, finish and durability and the experienced Major Projects team is working hard to deliver the required products.
