St Patrick's Church, Soho Square, Westminster - Sally Strachey Historic Conservation
This major contract covered both interior and exterior works to the church. As Main Contractor SSHC had not only their own team on site but also managed a number of other subcontractors undertaking different trades.
The exterior brickwork was suffering from the general grime from being situated in a central London location including sooty deposits as a result of pollution.
The busy central London location of the site meant that the management of the project had to be meticulous in order to stay on schedule.
The external cleaning of the brickwork was completed by the SSHC team of experienced conservators using the ThermaTech super-heated cleaning system supplied by Restorative Techniques. This method and use of this system is very effective in the cleaning of historic buildings when the task requires a sensitive approach resulting in the protection of the original surface of the brickwork.
The cleaning of St Patrick’s Church, carried out by the SSHC team using the ThermaTech system, was highly successful. The results are displayed in the images below.
