Here’s a quick update from the surveyors overseeing the operation:
All works completed.
Brickwork cleaning works and paint stripping works are progressing. Block 1 complete, and second washes are being undertaken to the remaining blocks.
Timber repairs and preparations to block 1 are commencing Monday 23rd August 2010.
The stone restoration works are continuing, with additional staff attending w/c 23rd August. Once these works are complete to block 1, then the leadwork capping will commence.
The contractors have asked for an extension so that they can complete the repairs to the stone cladding around the cornice. We aren’t very happy about this and are negotiating that any delay is as short as possible.
