LAW COURTS, SOHO
Following on from our successful works at The Royal Courts of Justice, Stonehouse was asked to assess storage vaults beneath the Law Courts in Soho. The vaults suffered from a mixture of water ingress dripping into the storage areas and condensation building up on cold ceiling surfaces. Confidential files were constantly being moved around to avoid water damage.
We devised a complicated protection system involving Foamglas insulation to flat soffit areas, Vandex BB75E to open construction joints and a full cavity drain membrane system to walls and vaulted ceilings. We directly plastered all areas of meshed membrane and applied an epoxy resin non-slip vapour barrier to the floor. Much of the work was carried out by night due to parking restrictions and noise which would have affected the working court sessions.
