On 4 June 2019, the Caledonian Clock Tower was officially reopened after extensive renovation. Clarkson Alliance provided Project Management services on the restoration project which received almost £2m from the Heritage Lottery Fund in addition to council investment.

The 164-year-old clock tower officially opened its doors with a day of animation, art, theatre, exercise, exhibitions, tower tours and food and drink. A new learning and community centre, the Cally Clock Tower Centre, with a café, public toilets and dedicated volunteer room, also welcomed its first visitors.

The project was delivered by Head of Project Management Anna Etherington-Smith with support from Project Manager Jason Crozier and Senior Cost Manager Katherine Ahara. We developed a strong relationship with the Green Spaces and Heritage teams at Islington Council, receiving praise for our excellent communication, commitment to delivering a quality product and always pursuing the best interests of our client.
