Fishmonger's Hall West Elevation Re-Rendering

The Fishmongers Hall is a Grade II* listed building in Central London. It serves as the headquarters of the Worshipful Company of Fishmongers, and is one of 110 livery companies within the City of London.

The west elevation of the Hall was comprised of render on a brick and stone substrate. Whilst the more recent upper render remained intact, the lower cementitious render had failed and was separating from the substrate. This failure was allowing water ingress and additionally posed a safety risk An independent scaffold, free from the façade, was installed to allow repair works.

Our draughtsman recorded the existing jointing layout before our DBR craft operatives carefully removed the cement render, ensuring no damage to the substrate. Alongside the render removal, samples of the proposed new render were developed. Working with Rose of Jericho, we achieved the client brief of creating a colour and texture that complimented the adjacent South elevation granite.

With render removed, the fully exposed substrate was recorded by DBR Draughtsman, to inform the Halls historical records. The substrate was inspected for defects and minor repairs carried out. The new sand and lime render, supplied by Rose of Jericho, was applied by our craft team in three applications, with the final coat receiving a wooden float finish. The completed finish coat was scribed in a pattern replicating the original jointing layout
