Merchant Taylors' Hall, Threadneedle Street, City of London
The Merchant Taylors’ Hall stands in Threadneedle Street in the City of London where it has been the home to the worshipful company of Merchant Taylors since 1347.
More recently, the hall has become a popular venue for weddings and corporate events where the outside courtyard can be used to host any number of events. Within the courtyard is a historic fountain and it was for this reason that DBR (London) Limited contacted Fountaineers.
A full restoration of the fountain was to be undertaken which would include the provision of new operating equipment and the addition of lighting to the fountain as well. This was a project with unique challenges as the historical nature of the building and grounds had to be taken into consideration.
Throughout the project, Fountaineers and DBR worked closely together to ensure that the historical character of the fountain was maintained whilst ensuring the complete installation of the new operating equipment. The restored fountain features a full filtration system as well as chemical and UV water treatment. At night the fountain is illuminated by the latest LED lighting.
Fountaineers Managing Director Colin Knight was delighted with the finished restoration:
“It is always interesting to get involved in restoration projects and this project was no exception. It has been our pleasure to restore this fountain to its resplendent majesty and I hope that visitors will continue to enjoy this fountain for many years to come.”
