The heritage restoration that has been applied to both the Grote and Gouger Street facades reinforces the skills of those employed by HSR who scored highly on all fronts.
The meticulous work necessary to repair, stabilise, reinstate and protect was extensive, with the further added difficulties of no power tools and the exacting replacement of degraded materials.
The brick work has been through a meticulous conservation process whereby all previous applications of paint to the facades are removed – returning the finished surface to the true face-brick.
The mortar joints were then raked and re-tuck-pointed in a raised three-dimensional fashion, further highlighted by a precise application of a mineral-based paint to create contrast with the brickwork.
