We are lucky to have so many wonderful clients here at PEMCO. We recently visited one of our favourites: The Monument Building, in the heart of London. This remarkable building creates a backdrop to The Monument which is the famous landmark built in 1677 to commemorate the Great Fire of London in 1666. The Great Fire began in a baker’s house in Pudding Lane on 2nd September 1666 and was finally extinguished on 5th September, after destroying a huge area of the City.
The Monument Building is 10 storeys high and includes both retailers and office space, plus a spectacular roof terrace. The twisting fins on the outside of the building create a stunning visual impact and are a nod to the gilded flames of The Great Fire. These fins are practical too; they are designed to let in as much natural light as possible.
Keith and Gary were on site to carry out a triple risk assessment: Fire, Covid and General Risk. This is a site we are always in awe of, and it is especially fitting to do fire safety work at the site of one of the most famous fires in our history. What an honour!
Fire Safety is a specialist area for us, and something we are really passionate about.
