The iconic Northcote House is an outstanding grade II listed neo-Georgian mansion with traditional rendered façades. The property is located in the Sunningdale area, in close proximity to Ascot, this former site of the National School of Government is now being re-developed as part of larger development of the surrounding grounds.
We were instructed to carry out paint and render removal testing to the main house, terrace, and lower ground areas. The objective of this condition surveying and testing was to identify and record the condition and most efficient removal methods to each of these façade elements, to best understand and calculate the true value of removal, repair, and redecoration project.
This testing ultimately helps to ensure accurate costs and programme planning. A full waste removal process was also undertaken to ensure safe, effective, and environmentally friendly removal and disposal of the paint, as well as any softeners used. Every process was considered and highlighted at the outset, ensuring that the correct results were achieved, to allow smooth delivery of the project.
