Dudley Guest House
The Dudley Guest Hospital boasts a rich history and has played a prominent role in Dudley life over the years.
The original buildings on site began life in 1849 as almshouses and were built on behalf of the Earl of Dudley as accommodation for the local limestone miners who were blinded whilst working on his estate. Sadly the accommodation was not used and remained vacant for some years. In 1867, Joseph Guest, a prosperous nail worker invested a significant sum towards the creation of a hospital for Dudley. The unused almshouses were selected as the ideal site and the Earl of Dudley paid for all alterations, furniture and medical equipment.
Scope of Work
Williams Restoration undertook the cleaning of the facades at the Dudley Guest House. 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 Williams surveyed the building, identifying and completing some essential pointing repairs.

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.
