We are delighted that JRA’s refurbishment of the Grade II Great Arthur House in the City of London is a ‘2021 Civic Trust AABC Conservation Awards Regional Finalist’.
This project involved the re-cladding of the grade II listed Great Arthur House on the Golden Lane Estate in the City of London – one of the most influential British post-war housing estates and an important precursor to the Barbican Estate. Originally completed by Chamberlin, Powell & Bon (CP&B) in 1957, the Grade II-listed building’s deteriorating single glazed curtain wall system has been replaced with a matching, bespoke double glazed façade. JRA’s new façade stabilises heat retention, minimises air permeability and maximises the building’s overall energy efficiency, delivering a projected average saving of 31% on residents’ heating bills and reducing CO2 emissions by 13%.

The project won RIBA, AJ, NLA and the Society of Facade Engineering Awards in 2019.
