Entering the Northside Roofing Project in 2018, Penny Hydraulics employees Terry Brocklehurst, Brendan Millns, Darren Portfleet, Jarrel Samuel, Richard Gwynne, and Ed Penny managed the design, refurbishment, and reinstallation of 6 chandelier hoists.
5 of the chandeliers, located in the Waterloo Chamber, required disassembly of the winch systems and removal from site. The parts were refurbished and replaced where required, prior to repositioning of the chandelier hanging points. Following reinstallation of winch systems, the engineers completed load testing and commissioning of the systems, ready for use by Windsor Castle’s property maintenance teams.
The Grand Staircase chandelier, suspended below a timbered lantern ceiling, required a full redesign. Manufactured at Penny Hydraulics Derbyshire headquarters, the bespoke lifting system is now in commission, following load tests
