Chichester Stoneworks was commissioned to undertake extensive masonry repairs to the St. James church tower and portico.
Within the tower structure, iron cramps had corroded, causing the surrounding stonework to split and crack.
Masonry repairs included installation of new indents and whole stone replacements using Bath stone set in lime mortar; pinning and structural repairs and restoration of eroded stone features.
A significant element of this project was the replacement of stone lintels at bell level. Temporary support was installed within the bell chamber propping up the dome above. Steel joints were inserted into the joint above the lintels so that the existing lintels could be removed and replaced one at a time.
This fine church can continue to open its doors, something it has being doing since 1829.
Park Lane Bathstone has been installed by Grants on a small but significant façade in London. The Stone on Precast Panels are some of the longest able to be transported around London.
New Bond Street is part of a larger complex being built in the Capital and Park Lane Bathstone was specified by LDS Architects.
A superb example of the one stop Shop with Blockstone supplying the stone; CadebyStone fabricating; Grants Precast creating the panels and Grants of Shoreditch installing……couldn’t be easier.
Aaron Evans were the architects for this major redevelopment of a grade I listed crescent in a prominent and enviable position just off Lansdown Hill in Bath.
The works included the construction of a new 5-storey town house on the end of the crescent of Victorian buildings. Park Lane Bathstone was chosen because of its uniformity and performance.
