Listed building forming part of the Royal Arsenal Site. Woolwich. London

The Problem

 

Missing sections of cornice detail and balustrade.

 

The Solution

 

Charterbuild prepared templates from the existing elements of the building and commissioned a specially made polystyrene mould which was fixed to shuttering on site. To provide a stone face, the mould was lined in situ with stone repair mix made from crushed stone prior to placing reinforcement and a concrete backing. The missing blocks of stonework above the cornice were re-created by placing concrete blockwork, faced with stone rendering scribed to imitate the original stonework. After completion, the new works were toned-in to camouflage the new work and blend in to the adjacent areas.
