Standing 58 m (190 ft) tall the iconic Shell Mex House is a landmark along London’s River Thames with its famous clock face still proudly being viewed by thousands daily.
Detail of works by Stone Restoration Services
The Shell Mex building called not just upon Stone Restoration Services’ restoration skills but also their knowledge of strict working practice
We were appointed to complete stone/brick repairs and external glazed brickwork cleaning.
The famous clock had seen years of damage and the sympathetic restoration of the stonework was critical to ensure the preservation of the façade.The size of the building would have entailed a huge scaffold which would have been deemed uneconomical.
Stone Restoration’s completed all works using cradles and rope access.
The Health and Safety requirements were paramount and works were completed safely whilst ensuring quality completion.
