Triton was appointed to undertake a comprehensive programme of external refurbishment and repairs to the Grade II Listed neo-Baroque wing of this world famous department store.
At high level, works included the renewal of the roof and replacement of rooflights using a Decothane Omega 20 system, and new lead screening to the plant rooms.
To the Portland stone elevations, all masonry was water cleaned. Special attention was given to the statuary to the frieze, with all work undertaken meeting a specification provided by the Adriel Consultancy.
Remedial treatment of the rusting steel frame was undertaken and all necessary stonework repairs were carried out using Portland stone indents. Of particular note was the carving of a new nose and a crest to the helmet of the statue of Britannia which occupies the centre of the frieze sculpture.
A total of more than 350 bronze windows were fully overhauled, with the supply of purpose made matching ironmongery.
Other works included the renewal of pavement lights, redecoration and the installation bird deterrent systems to the stone cornices.
All work was undertaken for the Great Portland Estate whilst the offices and shops were in use, with minimal disruption to the occupants.
