Szerelmey Restoration are currently carrying out repair and alteration works to three Grade II listed buildings (19, 40 and 41) within the Royal Arsenal Complex in Woolwich. Our works include the formation and alteration of openings within the existing brickwork structure including the supply and fix of new matching handset and precast brickwork arches. Defective copings are being replaced with matching stone. Many areas of the original masonry including cills, plinths, moulded string courses and cornices are being repaired or replaced with matching Portland or York stone indents. Defective bricks are being carefully cut out and replaced on all three buildings using new matching or salvaged bricks. Isolated sections of the brick plinth course are being repaired using bespoke profiled Staffordshire blue imperial bricks. Defective areas of historic brick pointing are being replaced to match the original styles of each building and some areas are being tinted to blend in.
