CLIENT: CITY OF LONDON
KAEFER UK & Ireland worked with the City of London to provide the famous Tower Bridge with a facelift.
Acting as the principal contractor, our work involved stripping off the existing paint down to bare metal and repainting in blue and white. The bridge was covered in scaffolding and plastic sheeting to prevent the old paint from falling into the Thames and causing pollution. To minimise disruption to the people of the capital, we worked on a quarter of the bridge at a time, but some road closures were inevitable.
