145 Oxford Street
Situated on Europe’s busiest shopping corridor 145 Oxford street is in a prime location. Only a short walk away from the future Crossrail Train Line the shoppers are predicted to rise from 87,000 a day to over 300,000. This building had suffered greatly from years of weathering and neglect. Having recently been purchased to be renovated to coincide with the cross rail train lime, Williams Restoration were employed to restore the external masonry.
Scope of Work
Williams Restoration undertook the restoration and conservation of the frontal façade and rear chimney. This included undertaking a full façade clean with our specialist 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 Williams Restoration proceeded to remove the harmful cementitious mortar from the façade. This was then replaced with a historically matched, Lime based mortar with a finish to match the adjoining buildings. Williams also undertook the restoration of the existing cornice and window mouldings. This was done by running an in-situ mould and also fixing pre-cast mouldings made using Lime mortars.
Project location: Oxford Street, London
We worked with Williams on our RIBA award winning project The Sekforde, a Grade II Listed Regency period pub. The brief was to re-point the brickwork to the listed façade, which had been badly affected from the removal of cement based render that had been applied sometime around the 1930s...

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. They did a good job, and the facade now looks very smart and authentic.
