Squeezing Plasterwork

Using a technique known as ‘squeezing’, a rubber mould is taken of an existing length of cornice, and turned into a casting mould – at this stage, our Drawing Office can work with you to make any alterations or improvements to the design. Once a mould has been made, any length of cornice can be cast, be it a short section to fill in a gap, or an entire room’s worth of cornice to replace or replicate an existing design.

Bank of Scotland

Plaster Ceiling Repair

As part of a larger repair contract to the Bank of Scotland’s building in Edinburgh, Stevensons undertook the repair and partial replacement of the stunning ceiling in the imposing Bryce Hall. A room the full height of the building, Bryce Hall had been converted over the years to include additional floors and dividing walls, destroying sections of the plasterwork in the process.

To identify the areas that were in need of repair, a survey was completed, before in situ repairs took place, along with reinforcement of the fixings. In total, approximately one third of the ceiling needed to be replaced, therefore new fibrous plaster panels were cast and installed to restore the ceiling to its former glory.

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”.
