The remedial work on entrance hall of this London low rise apartment block was carried out with the residents still in situ. The work was carefully planned to ensure the safety and security of the residents.
Temporary support was provided by specialist props and bracing. This required removal of a section of the stone cornice with a specialist diamond chain saw. The stone cornice and timber beams were then removed.
The remedial work included:
Installation of new timber beams
Realignment of the stone cornice & making good the disturbed brickwork
Spalled bricks were resurfaced
Defective pointing was replaced with colour matched mortar
Damaged render on the plinths was cut away and made good with a specialist concrete repair mortar system.
AWT provided a long lasting and cost effective structural repair with the minimum of inconvenience to the residents. The buildings facade was left ready for decoration to restore it to its former glory.
