The Portland stone retained facades were extensively cleaned and restored. In addition there were many alterations to the masonry, described below.
The works involved:
- 5th & 6th floors were built using salvaged stone to accommodate revised floor and terrace levels and the reduction in the window heights.
- St Mildred’s Court facade from ground level up to roof level, was recreated in new masonry to form an outer leaf of cavity wall including cornices, friezes and traditional features retained through this elevation.
- Stone cladding to plant room and roof level areas, forming a curved screen supported on a galvanized steel frame.
- Parapet and coping stones throughout.
- Alterations to threshold in new granite.
- Carved frieze panels to high level 7th floor façade to Mansion House and Princes Street elevations.
The Banking Hall was remodeled in polished marble under a separate contract.
