IN SITU PLASTER REPAIRS

Plaster Preservation

Wherever possible, in situ repairs will take place on the plaster mouldings using traditional methods to match the existing design. This includes the re-securing of loose plaster, physical repairs to cracked or damaged surfaces, and ensuring that the moulding is secured firmly to primary and secondary fixing points.

RECREATING AN EXISTING DESIGN

RESTORATION AND REPRODUCTION

Where in situ repairs cannot be completed, Stevensons can re-create existing plasterwork and restore the mouldings to their original design. Using a process known as ‘squeezing’, an imprint of a section is taken to create a mould, allowing new sections to be cast and installed alongside the existing plasterwork.

Stoke Rochford Hall

Plaster Ceiling Reproduction

After a fire seriously damaged the property in 2006, Stevensons of Norwich worked to reinstate the plasterwork within Stoke Rochford Hall which had been destroyed by the fire across four major rooms – The Grand Hall, The Library, The Tudor Room and the Rochford Room.

Using surviving fragments from the fire and historic plans, Stevensons designers crafted detailed moulds to restore the 1841 built building back to its original Gothic style. The destroyed lime plasterwork was replaced with fibrous plaster casts of the reconstructed designs, with the wall plaster also reinstated using traditional methods.

This faithful reproduction of the lost plasterwork within Stoke Rochford Hall earned Stevensons of Norwich the prestigious Plaisterers Trophy in 2008 for “outstanding works both off and on site”, with the Judge’s commenting that “it would be a disservice to all the craftsmen and apprentices involved not to honour this project with an award”.

Hitchin Priory

Vaulted Plaster Ceiling Installation

As part of a site-wide restoration project, Stevensons installed an impressive vaulted plaster ceiling in the corridor of the refurbished Hitchin Priory hotel.

Installed within the Grade 1 listed building, the fibrous plaster vaulted ceiling leaves a lasting impression on visitors to the hotel. Stevensons cast the fibrous plaster ceiling in our factory, before installing the smooth plaster ceiling on-site, supporting it with a secondary metal grid attached to the main building structure above.
