Temperate House at Kew Gardens
Sussex Blast Cleaning have been appointed as a subcontractor to restore the World’s largest Victorian glasshouse, the Temperate House at Kew Gardens. Following highly successful projects on the Cutty Sark and Beachy Head Lighthouse, the company have been contracted to work on this iconic landmark.
Great pride Working on a World Unesco Heritage Site
Martin Griffin, MD enthused, “having been built in 1860, it certainly is in need of major restoration! Being part of a 5-year project and working on a World Unesco Heritage site, it gives us great pride to be involved with such a detailed and valuable building in terms of heritage and its amazing historical plant collection.
The large soaring iron arches and pillars typify the type of structures we really have vast experience of working on. We look forward to the challenge it provides as well as the long lasting restoration that will be enjoyed by the public for years to come.”
