Situated next to City Hall London, is the Great War Memorial, which was commissioned to commemorate the City of Westminster council employees who fought and died during World War I.
The design, created by British artist Lee Simmons, is made up of 82 marble shards sitting in tiered circular rows that rise to a central point. Beneath the marble shards, that represent the fallen council officers, is a circular steel plaque on which the names of officers from sweepers to financial clerks are inscribed.
The entire fabrication process took four weeks to complete. LWL fabricated and installed the steel supports for the Marble shards, and the commemorative name plates which were laser cut by an engraver. The marble was sourced from an Italian stone masons, before being retrofitted for the installation of the piece.
