Fibrous ceiling reconstruction

A large section of this 1840s decorative paneled ceiling collapsed and revealed some poor previous repair work.

This large ornate ceiling in Sefton Park, Liverpool required rebuilding of the cast elements, plastering of the missing section and inspection and stabilization of the remaining ceiling.

The original design consists of several elements and enrichment details. the overall weight and historic damage had led to the collapse. closer inspection revealed poor repair work to a previous problem and some areas were found to be loose and required securing in place with mechanical fixings

We removed parts to produce our silicone moulds and plastered the missing sections. securing the existing ceiling throughout with stainless steel washers. This protected the remaining elements from future problems

The missing elements wee cast in our workshop and secured to the ceiling. the panels were floated and skimmed to blend in with the original
