In 2016 Abingdon Court, situated amongst the historic buildings of Abingdon Villas in London underwent a major external refurbishment. The building had suffered greatly from years of weathering, predominately solution that was evident from the black carbon staining found during the initial survey. The building had also suffered from various cementitious repairs, not only on the brickwork but on the window surrounds also.
Scope of Work
Williams Restoration undertook the restoration of the Abingdon Villas facades. This included the use of 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 the restoration of the original render. This included repairing the original where possible and the removal of perished areas, replacing with a locally sourced, Lime based render.
Project location: Kensington, 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.
