Abseiling Stone Repair - Stone Works

One of our existing clients, a property management company, had a project in Westbourne Grove in London, requiring specialist stone repair skills and colour matching stone whilst working at heights that involved abseiling and working from ropes. Our team had to work fast and accurately against the clock as it needed to be completed within a 48-hour window.

Our specialist abseilers are highly experienced technicians and were able to complete a stone repair project within a strictly limited weekend window in the densely populated area of Westbourne Grove in West London.

In just 48 hours, our team of IRATA trained abseilers repaired the stone work of this building to its former glory!  

The Project

Abseiling Stone Repair

Stone Works

  • Location:West London
  • Client:Property Management Company
  • Project Duration:48-Hours
  • Subtrate:Stone
  • Access Method:Abseiling

The Site

The property management specified the goal was to achieve an immaculate result within the strict time window specified, with minimal disturbance to the residents close by. The safety of residents and passing traffic also needed to be taken into consideration. 

The Logistics

We were brought in to address specifically stone repairs, as part of an ongoing major repair project. Critical to the success of our weekend task was advance planning and site surveys, to brief the stone masonry team in detail and prepare all stone supplies. Usually, a project of this kind would require scaffolding, which is time consuming, expensive and disruptive. By working from ropes the team were able to work rapidly, covering large areas and reviewing all the stone while they were there as well as repairing the identified issues as required.

Stone Property Specialists

Our organisation and teams are fully accredited with specialist training and CDP is at the centre of people development. Safety is always an integrated priority and applies equally to all training for working at height, using any equipment from ropes to platforms. On average it takes 30 months to train as a stonemason and acquire all the specialist skills required to care for stone exteriors. Most of our stonemasons have been with us for years, allowing us to provide services delivered by people who are both highly skilled and experienced at working as a team.

Through the use of abseiling, our team is able to save our clients both time and money on any property maintenance services!

Revitalising Stone Buildings

We have worked for this property management company before so they already knew how we would approach this project. There’s a fine line between sensitive repair and looking like new, and the latter is not always desirable on an older building. We achieved our goal which was to make it look like the defect had never been there.
