The Grade II listed Victorian engine sheds were part of the former Peterborough East station, which was opened by the Eastern Counties Railway (ECR) in June 1845. As the city’s first railway station, it was initially known as Peterborough until being renamed Peterborough East in July 1923. Fletton Quays is a £120 million redevelopment of the city’s South Bank – situated near the Peterborough United stadium – which includes 280 high-end flats, a 160 bed hotel, an arts centre and offices, as well as restaurant and retail facilities.
Scope of Work
Williams Restoration undertook the restoration and conservation of the Fletton Quays as part of the multi-million pound regeneration project. 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 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 internal work in the adaptation of door ways and window openings. This was done using materials sourced from the same building.

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.
