The Old Admiralty Building
Spring Gardens, London, SW1
Three phases of the external refurbishment of this Grade I Listed building were undertaken by Triton, with all of the masonry works scheduled and overseen by the Ingram Consultancy.
The Portland stone and gauged brick façade was firstly cleaned, with extensive repairs being undertaken, as necessary, with matching brick and stone. Structural defects encountered included rusting steelwork to the north tower and inadequate weathering detail to the cornice which resulted in saturation and discolouration of the stone. Triton revised the backfall detail to direct water away from the façade.
At roof level, the copper finials and associated details were also found to be in a very poor condition. These were dismantled and removed from site for a complete overhaul which involved redressing of the copper sheeting.
Due to the sensitive nature of the building’s function Triton complied with the special security requirements at all times.
