Baskerville House was previously the Civic Centre in Birmingham and occupies a prime location in Centenary Square.
SRS Masons were deployed to Birmingham following a full structural survey by our surveyor which confirmed many masonry defects caused through the rusting steelwork frame that had caused sections of the limestone cornicing to fall to the ground.
This 18-month project entailed the mobilisation of our project team and specialist sub-contractors to install total façade scaffolding, this presented many obstacles due to the footfall and occupied building whilst our works were undertaken and precise phasing of the contract was required.
Our masons completed the removal of existing eroded fixings and subsequent installation of new stainless-steel replacements. In-situ repairs to the masonry units were undertaken and new bird deterrent measures installed. Extensive leadwork replacement were carried out. We undertook the necessary production of new complex Portland stone masonry in our yard in Ongar which were subsequently transported to site for installation by our fixer masons.
