Balmore carried out a whole range of works to the externals of the notable Grade I listed building, providing specification advice along the way. Works included stone consolidation, lighting protection, stone repairs, stone cleaning, pigeon protection and the like. Both the Building Surveyor and Planning Officer both commented specifically on their approach and workmanship.
The works were delivered both on time and on budget, whilst achieving an extremely high standard of finish. From a cost management perspective, I found their approach both amiable and non contractual, which is particularly refreshing during these times. I would have no hesitation in recommending Balmore on any external fagade contract or similar, I have since awarded them further contracts, and will be looking to introduce them to alternative Client bases of ours.
