City of London
Paye Stonework and Restoration
A phased main contract carried out to each of the four Cupolas involved the design and erection of access scaffold through the glazed canopy to enable cleaning and repair of the listed Portland stonework.
Due to the busy environment of a working market the contract required a very detailed programme and logistics plan to ensure that no trading was disrupted at any time. Damaged masonry was carefully removed and replaced with new stone that was re-worked by hand on site to ensure an accurate replication of the original historic architectural detailing.
Associated work included the repair of copper domed roofs, leadwork, repair and repainting of the iron finials and internal repair and decoration of the office space to each Cupola.
Paye received a Considerate Contractors Gold Award for its management of the project by the City of London.
