Project: Albert & Atlanta Wharfs, Thames - Wall Refurbishment
Client: London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham
Albert & Atlanta Wharfs reside on the Northern banks of the Thames, adjacent to Wandsworth Bridge in Hammersmith. Three sections of the river wall by Lord Napier Place, over 100m length, were surveyed & identified as requiring an extensive programme of refurbishment works to maintain the condition & stability of the wall, keeping it fit for purpose. The wall was constructed from a combination of reinforced and mass concrete with large sections of masonry & mortar.
Refurbishment works involved removal & replacement & re-bedding of damaged copings, brick work repairs, re-pointing, removal of vegetation, high pressure cleaing, repair of cracks in concrete, sprayed concrete repairs & hand applied concrete repairs. APA Concrete Repairs Ltd were employed primarily because of their experience working in marine environments to a high standard of safety and workmanship. Works were planned to suit tidal movements from temporary scaffolding in order to access the full extent of the wall.
