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.

Westminster City Council

Bespoke Stevensons-Stone® Mould

As part of their premise’s refurbishment, Westminster City Council commissioned Stevensons of Norwich to produce new castings of their Heraldic Lion logo, to be displayed outside the entrance to the building.

Using the existing stone lions, which had become damaged due to age and weathering, our craftsmen restored them to a state where a mould could be taken, into which Stevensons-Stone® was poured and cast into the shape of the original pair. Once cast, the new faux stone logo was finished by Angel Interiors, who applied the painted detailing, before being installed outside the building entrance by our team for the official re-opening.

Manchester City Art Gallery

Lime Coffered Ceiling Restoration

During an extension project to the Manchester City Art Gallery, the nearby Athenaeum building was incorporated into the site. Stevensons were invited to undertake repair work on the lime plaster ceiling in the Athenaeum, as well as complete plasterwork repairs within the existing gallery itself.

A key part of this project was to maintain consistency between any repairs and the existing ceiling – particular focus was given to the composition of the lime mix to match the existing Athenaeum coffered ceiling.

Where possible, replacement was avoided, however deterioration had occurred and some decorative elements had been destroyed, which required our craftsmen to cast brand new enrichments for the historic ceiling. The surviving sections were re-secured, and the new sections attached seamlessly, preserving the look of the building.
