Structural Renovations Limited are currently restoring part of the river wall in Wapping. The location of our works is at Pelican Wharf, which although was a wharf and warehouse well into the 20th century, is now a luxury apartment block built in 1987.
Access to the works area is limited by the tides which has meant careful planning and programming has had to be put into place to maximise the available working times. We have erected scaffold on the river bed/foreshore, securely fixed to the embankment wall to avoid being washed away at full tide.
The works are concerned with brickwork repair and stabilisation, concrete repair and consolidation and associated ironmongery repairs to the river wall and adjoining access steps between Pelican Wahrf and the historic Prospect of Whitby public house.
