The London Chancery Court Hotel, formerly the Pearl Assurance Company Building, is a 1914 Edwardian English Heritage Grade II listed building which sits behind the Beaux Epoch facade designed by Moncton and Newman in 1912.
Under new ownership the Chancery Court Hotel underwent a three year £85 million refurbishment, which was a collaboration between architects T P Bennett, designers EAA International and English Heritage, with PHD Modular Access providing the bespoke scaffolding solutions.

These included;-
- Gantry and Hoist run off tower for material access to the entire hotel
- Temporary Roof
