Wolfe Tone House, a large period building in central Dublin owned and occupied by AXA Insurance, was suffering various forms of serious structural failure that had resulted in sections of masonry falling to the ground. An extensive exterior restoration was needed to avoid danger to the public.
The three storey brick building was rendered with Roman Cement and had a large number of decorative modillions and friezes. It also had various layers of paint including modern masonry paint which had sealed the building, trapping moisture and resulting in freeze thaw action which corroded wrought iron fixings and damaged the outer façade.
After all the paint was removed the repairs, as specified by the engineers, were carried out.
Once all the concealed Helifix repairs had been completed and structural integrity restored to Wolf Tone House, the fully restored exterior façade was repainted using a breathable mineral paint.
