Senate House North Block update: Balconies take shape in the main atrium

By Sohinee Sen|June 2, 2016|Uncategorized|0 comments

As work continues on Senate House North Block, the team have been focusing on the two balconies around the main atrium where paving slabs made of Portland stone are being laid.
Portland stone is a limestone from the Tithonian stage of the Jurassic period quarried on the Isle of Portland, Dorset. It is an off-white building material known for its durability. The building’s courtyard façade is also made from this material.
