The Worshipful Company of Paviors is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London. The Paviors were formed at some point prior to 1276; they were responsible for the paving and maintenance of London's streets. It received a Royal Charter from Queen Elizabeth II in 2004. The Company is no longer a trade association for, and a regulator of, London's road constructors. Today, it focuses on the promotion of excellence in all areas of construction [1]

The Paviors' Company ranks fifty-sixth in the order of precedence for Livery Companies.[2].
