St Paul’s Church
The boundary wall between properties owned by Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing and St Paul’s Church in Clapham had been taken down prior to our involvement, due to the structure having a severe lean and the worry of collapse.
The wall itself being Grade II listed meant a designed solution for remediation was required with both the structure and brickwork being in keeping with the listing. The works were completed in line with the Conservation Architect from Giles Quarme Architects (GQA), who were appointed from the Church.
Due to the listing, we had to use traditional methods of construction (London stock bricks and lime mortar), whilst introducing footings and steel structures that did not form part of the original construction. The two elements need to be brought together so that the finish was satisfactory to the Conservation Architect and its listing.
