Royal Albert Hall

AWMS played an integral part in the Grade One Listed Royal Albert Hall renovation project.  AWMS was chosen for its ability to analyse and precisely recreate the original gutter and pipe mouldings that were used in the originally installed systems, therefore contributing to the preservation of the historic building.  Over ten years ago, Alumasc Rainwater management systems were installed in a similar project at King’s Cross St. Pancras Station.

With the need to retain as much of the Royal Albert Hall’s original character and features as possible, Apex Heritage Cast Iron gutters and downpipes were moulded to exactly replicate the originals.  They were successfully installed, promising another 100 years or more of smooth-running water management and maintaining the period look of the building.

Using the traditional skills of expert craftspeople, coupled with modern manufacturing technology AWMS can copy and create bespoke designs for projects which require the utmost attention and sensitivity.

AWMS is the UK leader in metal rainwater systems with an unrivalled range of aluminium, cast iron & steel and now the new copper and quartz zinc systems.
