Stone & Brick Cleaning in Kings Monkton School, Cardiff, South Wales

Scope of Works

Following conversation with the Headteacher the below methodology was suggested

  • Top level soiling removal through careful sensitive low-pressure steam cleaning.
  • Areas to be cleaned: the stonework on the front façade of the building.
  • Working hours have been determined to ensure that the day to day operation of the school is not impacted. Working in the school holidays is advised.

Outcomes

As anticipated the testing proved that the best methodology was to steam clean the building using low pressure.  A ThermaTech machine was used as this is one of the machines that architects often specify for heritage work.  It allows for very gentle cleaning to be carried out.

Summary

The clean was completed outside of term time to minimise disruption to the users of the building.  To add value to the school, as the access equipment was on site the team also excavated & washed through the gutters & added some bird prevention (bird spikes) to deter birds from roosting on the top ledge of the building.

 

Adams & Hardcastle are experienced in working on projects that have various elements.  For Kings Monkton School, Cardiff the project manager worked with the Headteacher to ensure that the school received best value of having the access equipment on site & various services were carried out including stone cleaning & gutter excavation & wash through.
