Dixon House

This seven-storey Grade II listed office building underwent partial demolition and the addition of three new floors including the building of Dormer windows and entablatures formed of both new and salvaged Portland Stone.

Having initially been selected to carry out exemplar samples of non-intrusive, effective cleaning methods to the external façades, the Restore team were awarded further works including indenting repairs, facade restoration to the existing buildings, granite replacement and substantial brickwork to the rear.

Facade cleaning works included our recommendation of a combination of nebulous water sprays and a superheated washing system, which produced excellent results. A fully detailed methodology was produced which specifically included a water run-off control and collection strategy. Developed by the Restore London’s Site team, this aspect was particularly successful and ensured that pedestrians could use the covered walkways at pavement level unaffected by the cleaning works progressing above them.

““Restore London made our specified repairs so that they are almost invisible when viewing the room as a whole but are sufficiently different that an educated viewer could see where the mosaic had experienced areas of change when looking in detail. Perfect!” ”
