PTSG is privileged to work on some of the UK’s most outstanding and iconic buildings. From historic castles and monuments to cutting-edge skyscrapers, we are proud to play our part in ensuring they are safe and protected, clean and operationally efficient.

The former Wallington Town Hall is a municipal building in Wallington, South London. It is a Grade II listed building. It was designed by Robert Atkinson in the Georgian style, built by Perry (Ealing) Ltd and was officially opened by the Member of Parliament for Mitcham, Sir Richard Meller, on 21 September 1934. 

The landscaping around the building incorporated a garden of remembrance and a flagpole, which was erected in a prominent position in front of the building. The principal room was a double-height council chamber; the interior made extensive use of walnut paneling and the double-flight staircase, which was made from black and white marble, was decorated in an art deco style. Pevsner noted that the “romanticism of Sweden and Holland in the 1920s is represented, surprisingly prettily and pleasantly, by Wallington Town Hall”.

The building went on to become the headquarters of the Municipal Borough of Beddington and Wallington when the area became a municipal borough in 1936. After being used as the local registrar’s office in the late 1960s and the 1970s, it was converted into a courthouse by dividing the council chamber into two courtrooms, one above the other, in 1980. After the courts moved out in April 1999, the building was converted for educational use and became part of Sutton College in October 2005. 

In this contract, engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd completed a test and inspection of the lightning protection system in place at the building, in line with British standards. If any areas are found to need maintenance in such inspections, PTSG’s engineers are fully trained and experienced to carry out the necessary work to ensure the system remains fully operational.   

PTSG works with many listed buildings and other buildings of historical importance. Its engineers are highly experienced in ensuring any new installations or alterations to existing equipment are made sensitively, in keeping with the existing fabric.
