We have successfully completed the complete stone cleaning, stone restoration and external redecorations to (Hesketh House) Portman Square, London, W1 on time and to budget.
The works involved repairing the stonework to many areas of the Portland stone which had deteriorated over the years and certain areas to soffittes at high level a health a safety issues.
After a thorough careful survey it was found some areas of the structural steelwork had become corroded causing the stone to fracture and become loose.
This required the Portland stone to be removed to expose the steelwork, grit blasting the steelwork to remove all traces of corrosion and the application of specialist high performance anti-corrosive coatings before repairs and reinstatement could continue.
The illustrations will show some examples of this corrosion and where stainless steel anchors, mesh and rods were used in the restoration works. Forming the reconstituted Portand stone detail restored the building back to its former glory.
