Camden Town Hall Extension
Argyle Street, London, NW1
This project was undertaken for Camden Council under the supervision of the Watts Group plc. The contract comprised external cleaning, repairs and redecoration, throughout a period in which the building was constantly in use. The Camden Town Hall also houses a library on the ground floor, with disabled access, which Triton ensured was constantly maintained.
A tight twelve week programme was undertaken to clean and repair the 1970s concrete clad building in readiness for the opening of the new St Pancras International Station in October 2007, by Queen Elizabeth II.
The main objective of the project was to remove heavy soiling to all elevations of the building.
This was achieved by a mixture of nebulous water cleaning and DOFF cleaning with small localised areas of light low air abrasive cleaning.
Repairs were undertaken to the concrete cladding, using Ronacrete, for which Triton are approved contractors. Whilst the refurbishment works were ongoing the soffits were painted using the Keim mineral paint system.
Special care was required to protect the work of the internationally renowned street artist, “Banksy”, to the rear of the building.
