3 The Square

About: 3 The Square

3 The Square is situated in the heart of the historic town of Richmond Upon Thames in London. Since its construction, the increase in traffic over the past decades and due to its prominent positions in Richmond’s skyline the building had suffered from years of pollution and weathering, in turn a large section of the facade masonry had turned black with carbon staining and was deteriorating at a concerning rate from high winds and acid rain.

 

Scope Of Works

Williams Restoration undertook the restoration of both the external and internal masonry of the Victorian engine shed’s at Flatten Quays. This was done using a ThermaTech modular cleaning system. A system created with the environment in mind. Energy efficiency, water consumption and its low emissions makes it one of the leading resources for a environmentally friendly company to have. Once complete we progressed to removing the cementitious mortar from the brickwork and stonework and replacing this with a sympathetic Lime mortar. This was used alongside locally sourced materials to achieve a mortar that matched the original. Williams Restoration also undertook internal work in the adaptation of door ways and window openings. This was done using materials sourced from the same building.

Reviews

Our Italianate 1850's house had damp problems. A specialist surveyor told us the main problem was moisture being trapped behind defective cement render and the only real fix was to replace this with breathable lime render. We thought this would also be a good opportunity to restore missing decorative features, most of which had been lost when the building was converted into flats in the 1970s.

The Williams Restoration team took on the whole job, from removing the cement render through to re-decoration. There's no avoiding the fact that this type of work is messy and sometimes noisy, but they tried hard to minimise nuisance to ourselves and our neighbours. Where there were choices to be made, Craig discussed the options and their cost implications. Costs were generally kept in line with initial estimates. Some of the decorative work was quite demanding, such as running arches, pilasters, and string courses in situ, to match original features remaining on nearby houses. They did a good job, and the facade now looks very smart and authentic.
