Project: Old Deanery, London

Client: Sykes and Sons 

We were instructed to carry out works with Sykes and Sons at the Old Deanery, This is a Grade I Listed building built in 1672. Barwin specialise in working with listed buildings and take great pleasure in working on such prestigious projects such as this.

Scope of Works:

  • Heli-bars, Heli-beams & Cem-tie repairs to Front, Rear & Side Elevations both internally & externally.
  • Brick repairs & replacements to Front, Rear & Side Facades
  • Landing & Treads – We removed the existing steps and reinstated new black Basalt treads and risers to the     main entrance to match the existing and repaired some of the existing by means of lifting the marble tiles to the landing and forming a new sub-base and related the tiles. We also had to consolidate the arched façade by means of using slate packers and stainless steel threaded dowels. This was then rendered in lime.
  • Lay new Paving slabs on pedestal support system to side elevation
  • Cill repairs
  • Courtyard Works – The biggest element of work involved on this project was the front entrance courtyard, where we had to take up the Purbeck stone, granite setts and cobbles and relay them to meet DDA requirements as well as the new the lift access. We did this by recording all the Purbeck stone taken up by means of marking up scaled drawings and photographing each sett numbered and dimensioned and retained these records for the architect. These were then cleaned and set aside. We then excavated the courtyard by approx. 300mm and in some cases more and laid a new (GSB type 1) sub-base which was levelled. Once we had preparing the surface, we reinstated the stone setts on a lime mortar bed inclusive of adding new manhole covers and infilling the lift pit with pinkish/grey granite setts. This had to be done methodically and put back as it was.
