New client, Rise Management Consulting Limited, commissioned Axis’ award-winning Heritage team to undertake a Heritage Roof Repairs and Replacement programme at Bromley Old Town Hall.
A Grade II listed building, Bromley Old Town Hall was built in 1906 by R Frank Atkinson in a neo-Wren style and is particularly admired for its hipped slate roof and central cupola constructed in timber.
Therefore, during the Heritage Roof Repairs and Replacement programme, our Heritage team used products, materials and methods which matched closely all visual characteristics and features of the existing building. We took great care to make joints between existing and new work as inconspicuous as possible.
To both pitched and flat roofs we carefully removed existing Westmorland roof slates for reinstatement and replaced damaged slates with new Vermont roof slates. We installed new roofing felt, secured a new waterproof membrane and installed a new Bauder flat roof system. Our Timber works included removing and applying new timber coverings. We also supplied and installed new rooflights, access hatches and lanterns.
Our Metal works included installing new metal access stairs and safety edges.
In addition we supplied and installed new rain water goods and gutters whilst making good existing rain water goods and gutters.
As the building is bounded by neighbouring buildings on all sides we also took great care to keep disruption to a minimum.
