Throughout the 1930’s Alden’s made great strides in the area of air conditioning as well as central heating, “environmental engineering” as it became known.
At the outbreak of the war in 1939, Alden’s became heavily involved in Britain’s war effort, turning over the workforce to the needs of the nation.
Following the war, Alden’s experience with the Universities paid great dividends. The Government’s interest in education meant that this became a considerable growth area for the company.
During the 1950’s many contracts were carried for the Government, and the refurbishment of the London Guildhall.
The new prosperity of the 60’s brought contracts in the commercial sector, particularly office blocks and retail outlets.
In the 70’s and early 80’s the company was very much involved in the Hospital expansion programme. The 1990’s included work within the Pharmaceutical research and manufacturing industry.
Since entering the 21st century we are proud to have been associated with many prestigious projects including the Said Business School, Tusmore House, Kensington Palace and most recently Lords Pavilion, amongst many others.
We work closely with many leading firms of Architects and Consulting Engineers, and over the years we have also worked extremely successfully in a consortium with other building disciplines.
