10 – 72 Sussex Square is a large private residential block in the heart of Bayswater constructed with a reinforced concrete frame clad with brickwork and glazed panels with projecting mosaic covered balconies to the front elevation.
Over the years there has been significant frost damage to the brickwork and failure of the mosaics to the balconies.
The property owners, the Church Commissioners of England, employed Structural Renovations Ltd to carry out an abseil survey to investigate the defects, establish the construction details and carry out testing of the concrete frame to assist in a feasibility study into over cladding the façade.
The survey was completed in late February and the report submitted in early March in time for the client’s team to review and prepare a scheme for the project that is to be carried out this summer.
The Company has recently completed a cut to falls insulation and waterproofing system to one of the existing concourse roofs at Uxbridge Underground Station.
The system consisted of tapered insulation board and Proteous Pro-Cold 1 part liquid applied roof membrane and was carried out during normal working hours with no disruption to passengers below.
Following the success of the London Olympic Games in 2012, the Olympic Stadium is being refurbished for future use.
As part of the strip out, low level seating has been removed and the concrete supports demolished around the perimeter of the stadium. In addition a number of walls have partially demolished.
The resultant damage concrete and exposed reinforcement have been repaired using a hand placed polymer modified repair mortar.
