Stone Restoration Services were appointed principle contractor to clean and repair the external façade of this prestigious building.
As this builidng is situated in Central London, Stone Restoration Services contract programming was critical to ensure all trades, scaffolding and masonry teams worked together to ensure no disruption to services and personnel whilst the business remained fully occupied and operational.
Works were undertaken by our in house Façade preservation team using a combination of TORC abrasive system and masons nebulous water clean which is considered to be the least aggressive form of cleaning. Before starting, the porosity of the stone was assessed in order to balance the amount of water and duration required. By comparison the use of low pressure water washing would risk saturating the masonry which may cause corrosion of fixings or internal building damage.
