Projects Barclays Bank, Aberystwth

Dawson Stone Masonry Ltd were contacted for specialist maintenance to the existing façade of Barclays Bank, Aberystwyth.

The project incorporated scaffolding the front elevations and carrying out pressure cleaning to the Portland Stone areas & granite plinth.

The building was then inspected for defective joints and re-pointed where necessary. Brickwork chimneys at high level had suffered badly from weathering in the exposed seafront location, as such the chimneys were raked out and entirely re-pointed in suitable restoration mortar.

A high number of the balusters to the balustrade were removed from site due to severe weathering, a detail was taken of the existing before new balusters were produced in natural Portland stone to match.
