STONEWORK
The 1912 Marconi Building, February – March 2013, Stone and Brick Restoration

Early in 2013 London Stone Conservation was commissioned by Bellway Homes, to transform the Main Entrance Portico of the 1912 Marconi Building back to its former glory.

 

The aim was to re-use as much of the existing stone as possible , whilst re-moving corroded, heavily weathered and failed or lost sections of the stonework, replacing these sections with new carved stone to match the existing original stone in texture, colour and finish as closely as possible.

 

Part of the works saw failed and delapidating brickwork replaced, and re-pointed, sections of the chimney stacks removed, replaced and rebuild, and parts of the ornate stone work of the pediment sculpture recarved.


The existing Name Plaque reading: MARCONI’S was re-painted and re-gilded.
On completion of the works the entire Portico was cleaned using the English Heritage approved Doff Cleaning System.

 

The result enhances the appearance of the Portico and makes it a focal point of the front façade of this historically important building.
