BUILDING CONSERVATION
Malaysian High Commission , London, SW1, 2014

Last summer saw LSC appointed as Principal Contractor for the façade restoration of the Malaysian High Commission's 'Education Department' in Bayswater. This extensive program of restoration involved complete refurbishment and significant structural repair of the Facade.
 
The Malaysia Education Centre building comprises five individual properties joined into one building. Our works had to be delivered without any disruption to the day-to-day operations of the Education Centre allowing the client's work to continue as usual while our own was carried out.
 
During a five-month program LSC delivered a complete renovation starting with stripping all painted surfaces and cleaning the brickwork before undertaking the necessary structural repairs across the façade.

 

As with many buildings of this time, ornate stucco was used extensively as decoration, much of which had failed and needed to be replaced. LSC also ensured that all ironwork features were stripped, primed and painted, commissioning missing sections from a local foundry to complete the work.
