Brookwood Cemetery, Surrey
The three Mausolea at Brookwood Cemetery are the resting places of the founding members of the Tata family.
They combine both Egyptian and Classical features, with two elaborate bronze gates, decorative rosettes, a winged sun to the frieze and polychromatic ceramic plaques, each side of the entrance.
Following consultation at the pre-tender stage, Triton were appointed to externally refurbish three buildings and the surrounding areas, on behalf of the Surveyors, Calford Seaden.
Externally, work included the cleaning of the Portland stone using fine nebulous, intermittent, water sprays, with the TORC (JOS) system reserved for the heavily stained walls.
Internally, the mosaic ceiling was cleaned with the appropriate Triton cleaning agent and repaired with matching materials.
Work to the metal details included the retoning of bronze caskets and external motifs, with redecoration of the tomb doors.
As part of the landscaping, Triton installed an ACO drainage system, with a soakaway.
To finish, the dwarf wall was reconstructed and the headstones were cleaned and gilded.
