Value = £170,000

Location = Gayners Park, Old Upminster

Client = Havering Borough Council

Summary = Refurbishment of Grade II Listed bridge over a lake

Challenge = Working over a river- some of the works carried out were below the water line.

Solution = The river was originally diverted using large drainage pipes and later dammed to control water levels. This allowed access for scaffolding to be erected and works to be carried out particularly below the usual water level. Works included removal of modern cements, re-rendering in traditional materials - lime and roman cements, structural repairs, new balustrading and new surface to bridge.
