THE CHAPTER HOUSE OF ST PAUL'S CATHEDRAL
Designed and built by Sir Christopher Wren and his son in 1715, this Grade II* listed building was the victim of the bombs in WW2 intended for its neighbour, St Paul’s Cathedral. Our works revealed the French bricks used to rebuild the Chapter House due to a shortage of traditional materials in London. The building was undergoing a first major refurbishment since the war with the basement allocated for useable space.
The Stonehouse team installed a fully reversible cavity drain membrane system to the walls and a durable epoxy resin vapour barrier to the concrete floor. We were appointed by specialist conservation architects to perform the works which included complex detailing and cutting around original features which needed to be retained.
