Beaux Arts Building


Beaux Arts Building

We have just completed the 1st phase of external repairs & coatings to the concrete & render together with painting & decoration of other areas at the Beaux Arts Building in North London.

It was built in 1932 as a Money Order Office for the Post Office and was designed in a classical Edwardian style. The nature of the work meant that the employees needed a lot of natural light to see the addresses and read type, hence the great expanse of windows.

The building was converted into flats in 1994, which contain high ceilings, galleries and amazing rooftop views of Holloway.

Remaining phases will include concrete & render repairs, protective coatings, painting & decorating, window replacement and liquid applied roof membranes.

We recently completed the application of a fast curing, waterproof flooring system to a 1st floor walkway at a care home in Margate, Kent.

Prior to the application of the new surface materials part of the L- shaped walkway timber deck was replaced, to address an historical issue with insufficient drainage falls.

As the care home was to remain in operation throughout the works it was imperative to the client that the new flooring system was installed in the shortest possible time-frame.

A specification was developed by RPM Belgium to use the Vulkem Quick Membrane System, encompassing a primer (which is also able to be applied directly to timber), joint reinforcement, a 2mm membrane incorporating natural quartz aggregate and a coloured sealer/topcoat.

Available in range of colours and finishes, the system is ready for use 1 hour after completion and can be applied at temperatures below 0°C.

Mason House Basement Waterproofing


Waterproof rendering with membrane

Flexcrete

Mason House dates back to 1737 and has listed status. The luxury night club operates within the vaults beneath street level and has recently been refurbished to resemble a masonic temple.

We were appointed, as main contractor, to rectify what has been an ongoing damp ingress issue within the administrative area of the club.

The existing waterproof render system was removed to expose the original brickwork beneath. This needed localised repairs and was then levelled using Flexcrete Monomix and Monolevel RM providing a suitable substrate for 2 coats of Flexcrete Cementitious Coating 851 to be applied. Once cured, this thin coat waterproof system was able to be decorated.

Carbon Fibre Plate Bonding


Lancaster Hotel

St. Georges HospitalWe have recently carried out two projects involving the installation of carbon fibre reinforced plates.

The Lancaster Hotel just off Hyde Park and the Theatre Recovery area of St. Georges Hospital in Tooting are currently undergoing refurbishment and weber.tec force carbon plates have been specified to be bonded to either slab soffits or walls where new service holes are to be formed.

As both the buildings were occupied during the installation, noisy works periods were limited and generation of dust was controlled by plant fitted with dust collection equipment.

Pavilion Retail Park, Brighton


The Pavilions Retail Park is bounded on one side by a 5m high retaining wall constructed from concrete and brickwork faced in places with render.  The 240m long wall has been constructed in phases over a number of years and has suffered from water ingress and root damage.

The Company has been appointed to carry out a make safe survey removing all loose materials that could be hazardous along the adjacent fire route, storage and public areas and to establish the condition of the wall along its whole length in order that a repair programme can be prepared for implementing.
