Plaster Reproduction Example

We recently reproduced an entire plasterwork ceiling in every detail and refitted this in another part of the building prior to major internal reconstruction.

The old Finsbury Town Hall was sold to a Dance Academy and the ground floor rooms were to be enlarged to make several dance studios. The original civil wedding room needed to be reproduced in every detail and built in another part of the building. Before it was demolished we had to take various squeezes, sections, phs and dimensions so that we would be able to make up the models and moulds for the cornice and enriched ceiling to be reproduced.

Work then continued at our workshop

Once back in our workshop all the sections and squeezes were laid out and after several processes the moulds for cornice and enriched ceiling were made.

Casts were then produced.

Casts were then made out of the moulds and stored until the new room was ready.

The new ceiling was then installed

Once the new room was ready for us to fix, the cornice was the first to be fitted and made good followed by the enriched ceiling panels (42) which then had all the joints and mitres filled in and left ready for painting.
