Knightsbridge Crown Court

Client: Harrods Estates Ltd.
Architect: M.L. Design Group
Contractor: Skanska Construction UK Ltd.
Sub-contractor: Raymond and Brendan Fearon Brickwork
Material: W.T. Lamb & Sons Cut Face Medium Red Rubber material formed into Gauged Arches and highly carved
relief panels

In January 2001 Lambs were approached by Skanska Construction UK Limited
to survey an existing decorative doorway which had been originally manufactured
from TLB Red Rubber Material.

The doorway was extremely intricate with large areas of relief carved
brickwork, including Swag Details and Carved Corinthian Capitals, all
these details were formed in gauged bricks with 2mm joints and because
of constant wear over the years and lack of maintenance the Planning Authority
insisted the doorway be replaced with an exact copy of the Gothic doorway.

Lambs submitted samples and a report of their findings to the contractor
and an official quotation was forwarded to Skanska Construction for their
consideration. On the 11 April 2001 Lambs received an official order
from Skanska Construction to manufacture a replacement doorway and the
decorative bricks were delivered to site within six weeks.

The photographs to the right clearly demonstrate Lambs commitment to
deliver high quality ornate carved brickwork on time to meet the expectations
of their clients.

Lambs look forward to demonstrating our expertise as
master brick manufacturers, through the supply of our materials to your
