BUILDING CONSERVATION
Royal Academy of Arts, London , Picadilly, 2013

In March 2013, after many months of negotiation, London Stone Conservation was awarded the contract for interior stone finishes in the refurbishment works of the Keeper’s Wing at the Royal Academy of Arts.


The works included the refurbishment of the main interior Portland stone staircase; the conservation of internal original brickwork; the supply and fitting of internal stone flooring to match the existing original floors; the setting out and building of gauged brickwork arches and reveals on the interior and exterior of the building.


In preparation for the works, stone samples were sourced for approval by the architect and client; lime mortar pointing samples were also carried out to establish a suitable colour for each individual floor.


LSC were able to find reclaimed Belgian black marble tiles, which were cut and re-polished to become an integral part of the matching design for the new reception room.
The end result of the alteration works is in close keeping with the original design intention of the building and enhances the overall appearance.
