Scope of Work
Williams Restoration undertook the restoration of the uppermost, balcony façade. This included matching the newly constructed balcony extension to the original balcony walls using Lime render, stucco methods. The walls were completed using the historic method using Ashlar Lines. Historically, this was done to to give the appearance of Bath stone and to emphasise the illusion of masonry joints.
The Prada, balcony facade was finished by painting the facade using the KEIM, breathable, mineral paint system
Project location: Old Bond 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...

"Cumberland Lodge is a grade two listed building that is part of the Crown Estate in Windsor Great Park. We employed Williams Restoration to refurbished the brickwork on our main front entrance..."
Colin Baker, Cumberland Lodge.
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.
