Camden Town Hall Refurbishment

PAD Contracts were commissioned as architectural metalwork specialists on London’s Camden Town Hall refurbishment project.

About the Camden Town Hall renovation work

It is predicted that the renovated Town Hall will be ready to reopen in the autumn of 2022. The site, located in the heart of the knowledge quarter, will be multifaceted. Half of the building is designed to accommodate small businesses while the rest will house Camden’s civic floor with a new council chamber, and three new wedding suites.

The aim of the project is to support the economic recovery of the London Borough of Camden through reduced rents and new jobs and apprenticeships, as well as providing a platform for the Town Hall to be self-financing.

While the refurbishment continues, PAD Contracts’ work on the project is already complete.

Architectural metalwork for Camden Town Hall, London

PAD Contracts completed the following architectural metalwork fabrication and installation services on Camden Town Hall:

New installations

  • Full fabrication and installation of the new bespoke feature staircase in the commercial space to meet the aesthetic and functional requirements of the project
  • Structural glazed balustrades for the new lift lobbies, in keeping with the surrounding design
  • The linking of the new lightwell gantry and platforms by new ship ladders. These were all co-ordinated with the services models.
  • Roof walkways, plant supports, louvre supports, small stairs and steps to link different areas. Again, these were all co-ordinated with the services models.
  • Various new external handrails, railings, and gates

  • Alterations to the existing council chamber handrails and original stair balustrades, including adaptations for improved use
  • Adaptation of ramps where the new floor levels are to be raised to create service voids underneath
  • Refurbished handrails, railings, and gates.


Preservation of Camden Town Hall’s history

The primary aim of the project was to preserve the building’s history and cultural heritage while opening up access to this iconic landmark to everyone.

Environmental impact

The renovated building will carry an exemplary BREEAM (Building Research Establishment’s Environmental Assessment Method) rating by reducing CO2 output by 60% a year, alongside halved running costs. PAD Contracts are proud to have been involved in a project with such targeted cultural and environmental objectives.
