Pavehall were commissioned to carry out the sensitive and historic refurbishment to the Hawksmoor jewel building under the direction of the seminal Architect Maxwell Hutchinson Past President RIBA.

St George in the East is one of six landmark churches designed by Sir Nicholas Hawksmoor in London between 1714 to 1729 The church was designated a Grade A listed building (the ecclesiastical equivalent of a Grade I listing) in 1950 The church was hit by a bomb during the Second World War Blitz on London's docklands in May 1941. The original interior was destroyed by the fire, but the walls and distinctive "pepper-pot" towers survived. The works included the major conversion of the crypt into an early learning centre for pre school children for the local parish and wider congregation. St George in the East appeared in the 1980 film The Long Good Friday starring Bob Hoskins and Pierce Brosnan.
