Project: The Bomber Command Memorial, London

Client: Serco / RAF

The Bomber Command Memorial was designed by architect Liam O’Connor and was built using Portland stone. Within the memorial are the bronze sculptures of a Bomber Command aircrew.

Barwin are responsible for daily cleaning and upkeep of the monument. We also carry out annual sanitation, gutter, lighting and roof checks, as well as comprehensive cleaning of bronze and stonework every 5 years.

On Friday, 31 May 2013, Barwin successfully removed near indelible graffiti from the vandalised monument. Due to the delicate nature of the Portland stone, the removal of graffiti paint has taken over 4 days to complete. Barwin used Stonehealth’s DOFF machine and carefully selected products from Chela.
