Lead Roof Case Study - The Royal Courts of Justice
JTC carried out lead roofing installation and sculpting work on the historic Royal Courts of Justice building in London.
The Royal Courts were opened in December, 1882, by Queen Victoria. The construction of the Victorian Gothic style building took eleven years, and has been a landmark on Fleet Street ever since, with a grand architectural design to be enjoyed by everyone. The building was designed by George Edmund Street, R.A., who is responsible for the entire structure of the building, from its solid foundations to the intricate carvings and spires that make this building so historic.
JTC carried out installations of lead for the roofing on this impressive building. JTC are also presently attending to the ornamental lead work on the building. As a material used in the roofing industry for hundreds of years, the lead roofing blends perfectly into the design of the building, and is ideal for installations where precision and accuracy is required for an attractive look.
