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 Work
Williams Restoration undertook the restoration and conservation of the external facades to 3 The Square in Richmond. This included extensive repairs to the existing stone work. Following years of ‘weathering’ the stone was crumbling and in need of restoration. Williams Restoration’s specialist stone team cut back the existing stone to a sound and solid surface and repairs in situ following the same designs and shapes as the original. Williams Restoration also undertook the rebuilding of the uppermost chimney which included the re-use of all existing bricks where possible. Laid in Lime mortars, the remaining facade was entirely cleaned by Williams Restoration using a ThermaTech, super heated steam cleaning machine.

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.
