Voysey House is a grade II* listed building constructed in 1902 as an extension to the Sanderson’s wallpaper factory.
The building consists of a load bearing masonry façade with an internal steel and cast-iron frame. The masonry façade is faced in white glazed bricks.
Paye initially carried out a façade survey and exemplar site trials to help determine the repair scope and methodology. The survey hi-lighted a number of structural defects which had resulted in fracturing and displacement of brickwork caused by corrosion of the supporting steel frame together with failure of glaze coating and painted brickwork.
Paye were appointed as the specialist masonry contractor, to carry out extensive repairs including cleaning the facades to remove surface soling and paint removal. Cutting out fractured, displaced brickwork to expose and clean the corroded steel frame.
New matching glazed bricks have been sourced and will be laid keeping to original historic bonding patterns and joint arrangements.
