We are registered as a National Trust Contractor and have been sub-contracted to work on World Heritage Structures, English Heritage Properties, British Waterways properties and many private homes, public and commercial properties.
Below are a few of our highlighted projects.
Paint removal (modern pliable & cement based coatings) – Stone Cleaning – Brick & Tile Cleaning – Wood Beam Restoration – Concrete Structure Restoration – Buildings – Monuments – Steel & Cast Iron Structures – Architectural Items
World Heritage – Listed Concrete – Three Tecton Structures at Dudley Zoo
- Thermatech Super-Heated-Steam – Removal of modern pliable paint & organics
- Technical Light Abrasive Basting – Removal of cement based coatings to specification
- Sodablasting – Removal of resin & sealant residue spillages from other restoration processes
- Most Challenging was the Fluted detailing on the walkway facing but was successfully completed to specification
Fluted detailing – Original shape lost due to the shear volume of coatings
Removal required three steps using two processes.
1st – Thermatech Superheated Steam – removal of many pliable top coating paint layers
2nd & 3rd – Restoration blasting using a fine friable light abrasive – removal of numerous cement based coatings. This was accomplished in two stages with skilled blasting techniques taking all the coatings off to the base concrete.
