Structural Renovations have recently completed another phase of works within the iconic Grade I listed, Lloyds Building, within the City of London.
The building was designed by the recently deceased Richard Rogers and is famous for having all services, such as lifts and air handling on the exterior of the structure, to maximise the internal space.
Over recent years Structural Renovations have been employed to carry out repairs to the various reinforced concrete elements of the building, using polymer modified repair mortars.
Our most recent visit required us to complete structural repairs within the vast atrium, together with external areas. The repairs needed to be colour matched, to blend in with original concrete, so it was necessary to reinstate the defective areas in two stages; structural repair mortar to within 15mm of the finished surface, followed by the application of an approved coloured cementitious mortar.
The works were completed from a scaffold erected 13 floors above ground and from the Lloyds Building’s house cradles.
All works were completed outside of normal working hours, to minimise disruption to the staff and visitors.
