Fibrous Plaster Repairs at the Royal Observatory

Fibrous plaster repair project completed at the Royal Observatory.

We’ve just finished undertaking fibrous plaster repair work at the iconic Royal Observatory.  We were chosen to undertake this, whilst working on the nearby Royal Museums Greenwich estate of Queen’s House.

The Royal Observatory is London’s only planetarium. It played a major role in the history of astronomy and navigation, and is best known as the location of the prime meridian.

The observatory was commissioned in 1675 by King Charles II, with the foundation stone being laid on 10 August, it was completed in 1676.
