Bayswater, London W2
Triton have completed two phases of stone restoration and external refurbishment to this late 19th century mansion block.
The Ham Hill stone dressings had deteriorated considerably, especially to the porticos which were covered in paint. Once the stonework had been cleaned and the paint stripped, all defective sections were renewed with matching Ham Hill stone. These included plain ashlar blocks, a string course and curved, moulded indents. The scrolled corbel brackets to the entrance porticos were restored with a specially prepared Ham Hill stone repair mix.
The refurbished cast iron balconies were re-fixed back into lead pockets and Code 5 lead sheeting applied to the sky surfaces of the canopies, with curved flashing details.
Works of a more general nature included the refurbishment of the two main staircases, the overhaul and replacement of sash windows and the replacement of the gutters and downpipes. Also, a concrete/filler floor, on which the rear garden was built, was replaced with reinstatement of soft and hard landscaping.
