Originally known as Nottingham House, built as a Jacobean Mansion in around 1605, Kensington Palace, as it is known today, was developed by Sir Christopher Wren at the bequest of William III and Mary II.

A full electrical refurbishment was carried out by Lowe & Oliver in 2013 to the principal Apartment 1A. Whilst the installation called for a very sympathetic approach in accordance with the heritage status, modern systems comprising new lighting, intelligent switching, power, data, fire alarms and security systems have been installed without being intrusive to this historic palace.
