Celebrating 50 Years of HBS – Lloyds of London

Celebrating 50 Years of HBS – Lloyds of London

To mark HBS turning 50, we have dusted off and collated old photos from some of our early projects. The photos below capture a redecoration and cleaning project we completed for Lloyds in the mid 80’s to their ‘58 Building’. This was the main trading floor for Lloyds before they relocated to their current home in Lime Street.

The photo below shows the infamous Lutine Bell, the insurance claim that created Lloyd’s reputation for paying valid claims and for having the financial means to withstand a loss of such legendary proportions. The great bell, salvaged from HMS Lutine, a majestic French Navy Frigate in 1858, hangs from the atrium in the underwriting room.

Over 50 years later, HBS are delighted to be back in the area. This time we are completing a refurbishment  project for a client at No37-39 Lime Street. It’s good to be back!
