Bespoke 1500mm clock to feature on new development
Loughborough Park was a development of 390 flats built in 1938 and before the redevelopment it failed to meet the government’s Decent Homes standard. When the building was demolished, the original feature clock was to be restored ready to take pride of place on the new building.
However, the original clock dial was sadly lost, so we were provided with photos from which we drew a replica of the original dial and hands. Manufactured in metal, powder coated white and with individual numerals separate from the surrounding chapter rings just like the original, the clock now makes a striking feature on the new brick work.
We installed the clock after the completion of the new flats using our heavy duty CL300 electric mechanism, fitted with our resynchroniser to automatically adjust the clock after power failures and seasonal time changes. The clock is now a permanent reminder of times both old and new and remain a feature to enjoy for more decades to come.
