Szerelmey Restoration have completed an interesting package of restoration works at the Grade II listed Church of St John’s Waterloo as part of the Church’s ongoing Reignite 2021 Restoration Project. Our works were primarily focused on waterproofing and restoring the external paving to the front of the church, starting from the portico and moving outwards. The team removed, numbered and set aside a number of the paving stones to allow excavation of the existing bedding/clay. New drainage pipe and vari-level gulley was installed, followed by Enduramat temporary surface to spread the load. The regulating course was laid and DPCs and geotextile installed, followed by the bedding materials. Finally, the paving was relaid. To mark the launch of the Church’s restoration project and completion of our paving works, a time capsule was laid beneath one of the paving slabs during a festive ceremony. Szerelmey facilitated the removal of the slab, the burying of the time capsule and the relaying of the slab, and even provided the wine for the ceremony!
