Krol Corlett has once again been entrusted as main contractors to National Museums Liverpool Walker Art Gallery phase II – external refurbishment and restoration works.
This iconic heritage site is home to one of the most important art collections in the country, showcasing world-class paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts from the 13th century to the present day as well as contemporary photography and video.
As a much-loved Gallery, it was important for the venue to remain open for the duration of the works, whilst maintaining safe public access to the venue.
Our works include:
- Repair and replacement of eroded stone balustrades and cornices
- Selective repair (including replacement/ consolidation of corroded stone in parts) and cleaning of stonework, and repointing of parts of elevations
- Installation of handrail sections and access steps on roof for health and safety
- Replacement of timber duck boards to enable safe access at roof level for maintance
- Boring out and expanding existing drainage holes on top of cornice to enable better drainage and prevent water holding and associated damage, and associated new and refixed leadwork
- Repair and partial replacement of corroded metal railings
and much more…
