“THE GRANDEST SQUARE IN LONDON – Named after the founding Grosvenor family, Grosvenor Square has long been the jewel in an unrivalled aristocratic property crown. Mayfair’s timeless elegance reflects both the city’s heritage and fine English culture, with some of the world’s most desirable streets, boutiques, Michelin-starred restaurants, and exclusive private members’ clubs a mere stone’s throw away.” Ref: https://1gsq.com/overview

PAD Contracts are undertaking a comprehensive range of metalwork applications, including the penthouse roof railings, balustrading, and handrails. The metalwork installation work also includes automated gates in the main arrival court along with vitreous enamelled soffit panels. Due to the diverse range of applications the project required, PAD Contracts’ experience and scope of architectural metalwork solutions has proved beneficial.
