We are carrying out restoration and maintenance work on the stone façade and slate roofs at the historic and Grade II Listed Fairfield Hall, once Fairfield Hospital, built in 1856.
We were originally tasked with developing a new restoration and maintenance plan for Fairfield Hall. After undertaking some onsite test trials, we concluded the use of steam cleaning would be the best method to sensitively restore and uplift the historic brick façade.
We also aim to lift and provide a deeper clean to the sections that have been cleaned to date by blending these areas in with the cleaned façade, providing a holistic clean and uniform finish.
Historically, solutions have been potentially over-engineered, specifications too complicated and costs too high. Our role is to help simplify the future maintenance of Fairfield Hall and support the Estate and Board of Directors with pre-planned project solutions as well as ongoing external access and maintenance solutions on a planned and reactive basis.
Our aim is to demystify what is required and provide the client with more open sources of information that provide support, answers questions and helps to rebuild a robust external building maintenance plan that is transparent, fit for purpose and designed to support the investment needs of both building and tenants.
We have developed individual specifications for each of the buildings identified (Prior, Middle March, Taylors House, Marlborough, West Wing, Hertford, and Huntingdon). This approach targets key requirements, allows for cycling of future works, cost savings, and maintenance forecasting.
