The Burlington Arcade is a Grade II listed building set within the Mayfair Conservation Area and surrounded by other listed buildings, including the Royal Academy immediately to the east.

The Arcade is a busy pedestrian shopping arcade, approximately 180m in length, running north to south, linking Piccadilly to the south with Burlington Gardens to the north.

In summary, Polyteck carried out the following works: Redecoration of the existing render elements, features and ceiling.

      • Redecoration of the timber windows and bays above the ground floor shop fascias.
      • Restoration of the Burlington Gardens Canopy including a back illuminated replacement glass soffit.
      • New lighting scheme installation-including removal of the existing recently added pendant lamps.
      • Removal and relocation of visually intrusive lighting installations and components.
      • Careful concealment of cables within the arcade to blend within the existing timber frames.
      • Cleaning and repairs to brickwork panels above the shop fascias, including colour match tinting.
      • Removal and replacement of the existing Arcade shop directory signs of Piccadilly and Burlington Gardens entrances.
      • The works were carried out outside normal working hours of an evening and weekends.
