The Estates Department of Lincoln’s Inn has awarded Axis the external repairs and redecorations contract for its collection of listed properties, comprising of approximately 363,000 square feet of commercial and residential accommodation, sited off Chancery Lane.
Axis carefully planned the work to accommodate the important legal work that goes on during the day. During the work, repairs were made to: brick, stone, doors, windows, pointing and render. The roof renewal covered slate tiles, chimneys, lead flashing and new roof windows. Further elements included signwriting, paving, railings, lampposts and decorative ironmongery. The attention to detail that went into preserving the integrity and original design of these properties extends all the way to the specification of coloured putty used in the render repairs. The custom made red bricks used to match the existing construction were hand rubbed to create a 1mm join – a finish prescribed by the English Heritage.
