Fire Reinstatement and Refurbishment Project

Company: Cadman Construction Ltd  |  Category: Listed Buildings, Residential, Insurance Reinstatement

The Case Study Project comprises the full reinstatement of a significantly fire damaged grade two listed building, working for an insurance company on behalf of a domestic client.

 

The building required a significant scaffold and temporary roof prior to commencement of any building work and a number of large brick chimneys required substantial propping alongside structural repairs prior to completely removing the fire damaged structure. The building received a significant proportion of new oak roof, wall and floor members to replace the fire damaged structure and all carpentry works were completed in keeping with the methods used to construct the original building.

 

The external envelope also received new hand made clay roof tiles, replacement metal casement windows and the application of a revolutionary haired chalk lime render which was applied to new oak laths.

 

The inside of the building received extensive refurbishment throughout which included haired chalk lime render to all walls and ceilings, specialist oak flooring, a new oak staircase and a number of period features and specialist fittings to complement the heritage of the listed building yet to provide a modern feel where required by our discerning client.

 

Where possible original features were salvaged and restored and the drawing room and dining room areas received a significant application of french polishing by a specialist contractor to restore the existing rooms to their former glory.

 

This particular building required a significant amount of patience and dedication when following the methods and techniques adopted during the buildings original construction and the completed project is testament to the hard work and highly skilled craftsmen who were involved in restoring this fascinating and magnificant building.
