Project Details

Axis was awarded a Minor Works contract to deliver exterior renovation and redecoration work to a five-storey building in the West End. The ground floor is occupied by British restaurant chain Byron Hamburgers, and the four upper floors consist of office accommodation.

Our dedicated commercial sector team found cracks in the building’s existing facework. This meant that we had to replace and repoint the brickwork to prevent weathering damage. We pointed the window frames precisely to provide a long-lasting flexible joint between the outside masonry and frames.

In addition to the windows, we redecorated the downpipes running from the first to the fifth floor. The team utilised a liquid plastic system which was applied to the box gutters, improving their waterproof attributes, durability as well as preserving the underneath structure. We carried out slate repairs to the roof of the property and installed ridge tiles to improve fire and weather resistance.

Our team filled all joints, cracks and holes. We then removed any surface irregularities before the painting took place, to ensure a smooth finish. Our team of professionals also removed all dust particles and residue caused by the works and were disposed of safely.

Project Challenges

With the building being located near the London Transport Museum and several retail and commercial offices, we took extra precautions to minimise noise levels and to ensure the safety of the general public. During this exterior renovation project, our experts also made sure that surrounding buildings, roads and footpaths were maintained, and no damage caused to the property’s interior whilst carrying out the works.

To overcome delays caused by external factors such as weather conditions and location of the building, Axis increased the number of operatives working onsite and delivered work on weekends. Consequently, all work was completed as planned, within 8 weeks.
