Facade Protection and Refurbishment, Monument Preservation and cleaning

Description

The first phase of the project to renovate the inner courtyards involved cleaning and repairing masonry in the courtrooms used by chancellors and government officials in the House of Lords. Special cleaning methods were required for the windows of the Royal Gallery. Temporary protection and vibration monitoring were necessary in order to eliminate any risk of damage to the wall painting “The Death of Nelson” by Irish artist Daniel Maclise, as well as ensuring that the House of Lords could continue with its sittings uninterrupted. Remmers Clean Galena was the perfect solution because it can be applied and removed by hand without the need for machinery or pressurised water.

Concrete Protection and Repairs, Facade Protection and Refurbishment

Description

One part of the two-year renovation of the South Bank Centre was a large-scale concrete restoration of the exposed concrete surfaces in the interior of the world-famous art rooms. The walls and ceilings in the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Hayward Gallery and Purcell Room were restored to their original state by means of colour matching. In order to clean the surface from dirt, the room was prepared under strict observation of the room temperature and relative humidity. The film-forming peel-off paste Arte Mundit was applied in the required thickness to remove the surface impurities. This created a cleaner, brighter environment.
