Royal Pavilion, Brighton

Built originally as a retreat for Prince George, this Grade I listed building began life in the 1780’s as a lodge before growing in stages to become King George IV’s Pavilion.

Built in the Indo-Saracenic style, the extended portions were designed by John Nash. It includes domes and minarets supported on framed timber and cast iron. The Pavilion was passed to Brighton & Hove by Queen Victoria in the mid 1850’s and has been extensively renovated to its former glory.

CTP personnel have been involved in structurally assessing and repairing this distinct building for over 20 years. Our unique knowledge and historic information of the building has enabled us to provide sensitive and pragmatic solutions to the Pavilion’s continued up keep. The Quinquennial surveys are due to commence this year which involves crack monitoring, local opening up and repairs and non destructive testing and assessments of various materials including cast iron, wrought iron and stonework.
