Masonry repairs matched with colour, texture and performance in mind.
Façade and masonry repairs for listed building, commercial buildings and high rise blocks. Removal, stabilisation, preparation, reinstatement, solutions design to match the current building fabric or restore façade.
We work with surveyors, architects, property manager and building owners to ensure there building fabric is a sound state of repair. Repairs undertaken by scaffold, abseiling, cradle or mewp access, a solution for historic, modern and difficult to access structures.

At Building Transformation, we do things differently. We do them right.
Projects requiring a variety of traditional façade repairs
The repair of concrete buildings and structures requires understanding of the corrosion issues, both the cause and the effects to the fabric. Skilled tradesmen then ensure the repairs are undertaken correctly, ensuring the removal of the defective areas of concrete, treatment and preparation of the exposed steel reinforcement, plus then undertaking the concrete reinstatement so the repair has performance and durability.
For small repair areas we use electric or pneumatic tools to remove the concrete and for larger volumes we often use hydro demolition. The concrete reinstatement can be hand applied mortars or for large volumes it may be sprayed gunite or flowable self-compacting concrete. On completion of the repairs we can then apply a surface impregnator and protective coating to help protect the surface and internal steel from future corrosion.

Masonry or concrete repairs will often form part of a wider façade refurbishment project. Our work will often take place whilst the building is in full use, but programmes and access strategies adjusted to meet onsite and tenant’s requirements or delivered through the night where required. Due to the type of buildings we refurbish, their height, shape and size, we design and implement façade refurbishment, façade repair or external building painting solutions which use a variety of building access methods such as temporary cradles, façade hoist, scaffolding and abseiling method, cleaning, repairing, stabilising or painting building facades constructed of concrete, brick, cladding, render or stone building facades. We create bespoke façade refurbishment solutions, delivering building restoration solutions, masonry repairs, concrete re-enforcement projects with minimum impact to the surrounding environment.
Whether the building you own or manage is a commercial building, block of high-rise flats, bridge or car park we will be able to provide the solution that removes weaknesses, treats corrosion, cleans and then repairs the problematic areas of the building substrate. On completion of the masonry condition investigations and concrete repairs we can then provide a concrete cleaning solution to restore it back to its former lustre (whilst ensuring the long-term integrity of the building fabric is retained), speak to a member of our specialist concrete restoration team today.

21st Century Façades: Breathing Life into Urban Landscapes
The urban environment has changed enormously since the majority of building maintenance concerns were focused on more traditional masonry structures, materials, pollution levels, weather patterns – even the height of most buildings are completely different to a hundred years ago. This book illustrates how Building Transformation’s methods breathe new life, energy and vitality into building skins and cities.
