Royal Chelsea Hospital
Stonewest used a combination of Anstrude Roche Clair and Messangis Clair stone imported from France especially for the project of recreating a representation of the original hospital a short walk from the project site
The works involved:
- The works included Classical load bearing masonry, using 3mm joints with very fine tolerances during the manufacture and fixing of the stones.
- The new build structure implemented traditional masonry techniques, such as the use of lime mortar.
- Stonewest also implemented an on site quality control system, thoroughly checking over all stones upon delivery to make sure that only the finest quality materials were used on the project.
