As part of our Rolling Back the Years series here’s a look back at our project at Royal Mail’s Mount Pleasant.
This £1.8m façade package for the refurbishment of Royal Mail’s Mount Pleasant operational site in London was a logistical challenge, as the Royal Mail’s Centre was to remain fully operational throughout the entire process.
Working closely with Architects Boyes Rees, Project Managers Rider Levett Bucknall and the Main Contractor Mace, over 10,000 m2 of the building’s façade to the 120 year old mail facilities required extensive structural repair and enhancement work. This included concrete repairs, re-rendering, re-profiling fairing/levelling coats and final protective and decorative elastomeric coatings in an assortment of colours.
With a labour force in excess of 70 site operatives, this was at the time, the largest Concrete Repair project being carried out in Central London, if not the UK.
