We were employed by Interserve Construction to repair the Historical Governors block following incidents of falling masonry from the tower.  Around 600 quoins stones were repaired using new bath stone units to match the original moulded profile.  In addition to the stonework 6000 brick were cut out and replaced, and the building fully pointed to ensure adequate protection against the weather for years to come.  Both the JOS / TORC system and the DOFF cleaning method were used on the project, with the rear elevation being repaired by Stone Central IRATA trained rope access technicians. It soon became apparent that previous restoration work to the string details and detailed work was starting to fail, so this was also removed and renewed using Stone Central specialist restoration mortar which has been designed in house to match the original strength, colour and texture of the surrounding stone. Contract Value  -  £315,000
