The Green Goddess of Queen Square

Less serious than it looks – the BRLSI building may appear to be undergoing major structural repairs under all that scaffolding and green safety netting, but in fact it’s just routine gutter-clearing, window painting and so on. Scaffolding is essential for a building this size (ladders just won’t do) and such is the cost of it that five years’ worth of general tidying up is done at a time in order to get best value from the scaffolders’ work. With the Moore Room Lantern (skylight) at the back of the building also having been replaced, this had been a year of major building maintenance for BRLSI.
