Scaffolding Ready to be Dropped Following Makeover of City Centre Building

As part of the larger redevelopment of Eldon Square, external repairs were carried out to improve the appearance of the external façades of the building overlooking Eldon Square and Blackett Street in Newcastle City Centre.

Poor previous repairs were removed and re-done with a more suitable hydraulic lime based material, new lead was fitted to the high level cornice to assist with water deflection away from the building, resin repair and redecoration to the casement windows and the removal of metal fixtures and fixings that were corroding and subsequently expanding damaging the Ashlar Stone.
