Elite Building (Nottingham)


This scheme was the restoration of the external roof and fa├žade of this grade 2 listed building in Nottingham built in the early 20th century.

The building is faience block construction and suffered from Regency disease, concrete spalling, corrosion and weathering to the highly decorative mouldings, stone carvings and statues.

This restoration required great care from traditional craftsmen while intricately restoring the white faience facing and dressings, plinths, sills and lintel bands, scalloped cornice and full height pilasters containing allegorical figures.

Research of the building fortunately discovered the original manufacturer of the decorative stonework was still in business after all this time since the building was first built and were able to produce new molds and perfect replicas where in situ repairs were not possible.
