Here are some images Brian McCarthy, Readymix Sales Rep, took of the iconic Power Station in Lots Road, Chelsea. Not to be confused with Battersea Power Station, the ‘Chelsea Monster’ as it’s known, has no reason to feel pushed aside. This disused coal and later oil-fired Power Station was constructed in 1902. At the time it was claimed to be the largest Power Station ever built, and it eventually powered most of the railways and tramways in the London Underground.
We are currently supplying PJ Careys who are contracted to convert the station into shops, restaurants and apartments, and to construct additional buildings including two skyscrapers. Earlier this year we carried out a 2,000m3 continuous pour for the base for one of the skyscrapers.
