Abbeyhill Baptist Church

Built of red brick and Lazonby sandstone around 1895 having previously been used as a dancehall prior to becoming a church.

Working within the busy EH7 area of Edinburgh required excellent community engagement to ensure collaboration and avoid conflict with residents. Dust suppression and extraction at source was required to ensure the safety of operatives and the public.

Restoration of brickwork badly damaged by previous poorly applied cement pointing. Damp issues in the building resolved by replacement of parapet renders with lime also removal of cement pointing and replacement with lime mortar. Replacement of damaged pier cap and lithomex repairs to lintels.

Severe damage caused by cement proved an enormous challenge to remove many different approaches were required before an effective removal process was found.
Working closely with the church to ensure all community and religious services could be maintained throughout the project.

Thomas and his team carried out major repairs to the external stonework of our church building. The were knowledgeable and skilled and worked very efficiently. They were also clean, tidy and considerate.
