The control room was to be fully preserved, the restoration works was carried out to remove all corrosion and prepare the steelwork to ST3 surface standard, remove any loose, flaking or blistering existing coatings back to sound coatings, mechanically abrade all remaining areas of sound coating.

On completion of all the preparation to the steel trusses and walkway the areas were cleaned followed by the application of a 4-coat epoxy coating system to preserve the steelwork.

'Battersea Power Station Restoration Project'

Battersea Power Station is a decommissioned coal-fired power station, located on the south bank of the River Thames, in Nine Elms, Battersea, in the London Borough of Wandsworth. It was built by the London Power Company to the design of Leonard Pearce, Engineer in Chief to the LPC, and CS Allott & Son Enginee.

The project’s master plan was approved by Wandsworth Council and the Mayor of London in 2010, while the Secretary of State approved the project in August 2011. The entire project is expected to continue until 2025.
The overall site covers an area of 42 acres (17ha), of which 18 acres (7.28ha) will be public space and six acres will be used to create a river side park. The redevelopment will involve the construction of 3,444 new residential homes, 517 affordable homes, restoration of the power station itself, construction of a new tube station, 2.5 million square feet of office and retail space, a library, a medical centre, and childcare facilities.
