The scope of this refurbishment was to repair and re-waterproof the asphalt surface walkway of the Smoking Gallery at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall in South Kensington.
Before: Moss and Algae Growth
Before: Smoking Gallery
Before: Damaged Asphalt
The existing asphalt substrate was damaged with numerous cracks and allowing leakage and damaging the ornate stonework soffits of the walkways.
Our package of works had be divided into three different phases to coincide with ongoing events within the hall and to avoid any disruption. Sikalastic Rapid 721 was applied to the walkways and upstands after the cracks in the asphalt had been repaired with Sikalastic Rapid Filler.
Special care always had to be taken throughout to avoid damage to the ornate stonework balustrade upstands with our operatives harnessed to a man-safe system for safe working.
