Refurbishment works were recently completed to a former house that now operates as serviced apartments in the Brompton area of London. The property which was originally constructed in the late 19th century and was converted a number of years ago to its current use.
The front and rear elevations had not been maintained for at least 20 years and therefore required extensive repairs and redecoration, including brickwork/pointing works, waterproofing to balcony areas, timber repair/replacement and redecoration to all previously painted timber and stonework.
The front elevation was accessed from traditional scaffolding but due to a lack of access to the rear elevation this area was completed by means of abseil.
Specialist products supplied by both Fosroc (stonework repairs and stone coatings) and Sika Parex (brickwork/pointing repairs) were used throughout the works.
The project was completed within the anticipated programme regardless of the poor weather that was experienced during the works.
