Project Overview :

We are undertaking an external façade restoration project of the 15-storey central Bristol client-managed tower block, including the repair of cracks, spalling and corrosion of rebar in concrete panels, plus full mastic replacement.

One Redcliff Street, an iconic Bristol building, was built in 1964 as the headquarters of paper and packaging manufacturer E. S. & A. Robinson. Originally a 14-storey concrete panelled tower, a further floor was added to this landmark building 7 years ago. Building Transformation carried out a full façade condition survey, and this survey along with its historic condition formed the basis of the work that was required.

To re-align the property with the client’s desired vision for the next 10 years, we worked closely with the client and their façade engineers, reviewing the results and ensuring we delivered the required finish to the project. To that end, we were able to ensure that the work being carried out would deliver the building to a state that reduced the need for any major works in the future.

We utilised specialist concrete repairs systems that were designed to provide a long-term solution, protect the panelling and any impact of water ingress and carbonation, all undertaken by our team of fully IRATA trained rope access technicians.


Further works on the building are planned and include:

  • Fitment of bird protection.
  • Removal of lighting conductors.
  • Replacement and repair of mosaic-tiled sections.
  • Endoscope and GPR surveys.
