The Drapers’ Hall London

Works included erection of access scaffolding to the courtyard, overcoming restricted loading capacity & access issues ensuring no damage to the building or it’s contents, which included assorted oil paintings, sculptures & antiques.

The ornate Portland stone facades were cleaned using a combination of Doff & JOS Vortech methods, coupled by careful poultice application to the ornate mouldings to remove heavy staining caused by historic water leaching. Stone repairs including replacement Portland stone cills and mouldings, indent repairs, repointing & intricate repairs to ornate mouldings were carried out. All repair & pointing mixes were expertly gauged to match existing & approved by the client following the provision of samples for inspection.

Other works included leadwork & insitu repair & varnishing of hardwood windows to achieve a high gloss finish. During the project noise levels were monitored, controlled & documented to ensure minimal disruption to building occupants. Our works were completed ahead of programme, on budget & to the client’s delight.
