Air Raid Shelter Entrance Renovation

Prior to the commencement of the summer holidays, we were presented with an unusual request which was an air raid shelter entrance renovation. The second world war air raid shelter was underneath a school’s grounds. After using the shelter’s tunnels to triangulate its position, we excavated around the air raid shelter entrance which had been covered over with concrete and earth decades ago. We then formed cast concrete walls and steps to raise the entrance up to the existing ground level. New tarmac was laid around the entrance to help it blend in within its surroundings.

Having located and renovated the entrance for them, the school now plan to open the air raid shelter as an exhibition for other schools to use.
This was an incredibly interesting project to be involved with and we are delighted to have produced an end result that met with the client’s expectations.
