Description: Residential Heritage Refurbishment of a Grade II Listed Building
Gordon Mansions consist of two 8-storey Victorian leaseholder residential blocks off Tottenham Court Road. Many of the residents are very wealthy, some famous and very discerning. Lengard was contracted to undertake the external envelope repairs, to include windows, brick repairs & re-pointing, stained glass repairs, new roof and renewals, redecorations of all communal areas.
Due to the high density of traffic and one way traffic, both blocks presented access problems. All waste was on a wait-and-load removal and just-in-time deliveries of materials were required.
All repairs were undertaken sympathetically, including the recreation of many of the buildings’ original terracotta details.
The extensive roof renewal looked magnificent and was voted “Best Workmanship” at the Mastic Asphalt Council (M.A.C.) Awards.
