Fabric stonemasonry repairs to chimneys and parapet walls

This work was required to complete backlog maintenance to a Grade II Listed building. The building is open to the public and the design and erection of the scaffolding was paramount to the success of the scheme. Particular consideration was given to Lord and Lady Harrowby who were in residence at the time.

Large pieces of masonry required removal and transporting back to the workshop to ensure replacements were identical.

The work on 'live' chimneys required careful liaison with the management of the building to ensure safe working practices with no disruption to the working life of the establishment during winter months.
