Modern interventions have taken place in a number of areas, where particularly large openings have been made to the front of the building. Problems such as ingress of water resulted in the soft lime mortar being washed out of the brick. The entire front elevation has been retained.
Consurv Ltd with Dr. Thomas Brennan were employed to carry out a detailed survey of the envelope of this building which incorporated the refurbishment of the old mill and the new build. Many features of the mill were retained and there are now new apartments and houses on this site. Consurv Ltd project managed the conservation works during the contract at a massive cost-saving to the Client.
Our Condition Survey
We completed our non destructive survey recommending a valued engineering process to the prospective construction teams. We reviewed the condition of the roof facade and guttering, ensuring that there was no mould issues cased by hidden water ingress of failure of weathering detail.
