Glass Lift, Belgrave Square

Tooley Foster obtained Planning and Listed Building Consent for a new lift installation for this Grade I listed building in one of London’s premier squares on the Grosvenor Estate.

The glass lift is housed within a fully glazed shaft that has been designed to both minimise the impact on the existing historic fabric and make a bold statement as a contemporary addition to the building. Permissions were gained with the support of English Heritage, which approved the design approach adopted.

The new lift plus other internal refurbishment works enables the Institute to fully meet its obligations in respect of access into and around the building.
