Electra House
84 Moorgate, London EC2

The recent external refurbishment of this Grade II Listed building, dated 1903, is the third major contract completed by Triton as Main Contractor for the London Guildhall University.

Combining 12 specialist restoration and ancillary trades, all works were carefully planned before commencement on site to ensure completion within a tight contract programme and minimal disruption to the occupants.

To the ornate front elevation, the Portland stone was cleaned using water sprays. The JOS air abrasive system was used for ingrained dirt and poultices and for the removal of deep seated copper stains. New carved stone sections included replacement scroll brackets, lions' head motifs and indents to the ashlar, with in-situ repair used for minor spalls. Old gel strip bird repellent was carefully removed and cleaned from ledges and replaced with a stainless steel wire system.

Major repairs were undertaken at roof level with the installation of Purlroofer insulation, renovation of the rooflights, complete renewal of the asphalt and provision of new Code 8 lead to the cornice and weathering details. A new Keeclamp handrail was then installed to enclose the fire escape route.

All doors, windows and metalwork to the main elevation were fully refubished and repaired prior to the redecoration of all previously painted surfaces.
