“The Radar Transmitter was carefully tested prior to work starting; we devised methods that fit with the original appearance and structural integrity as we were not able to use traditional concrete repair techniques on this Heritage site.”
Historic repair work was trialled and tested prior to work commencing on site as there were restrictions in place due to being a heritage at risk site. Traditional methods had to be adapted accordingly creating bespoke methods unique to the project.
As well as restoring the structure to its original glory, we were tasked with creating a long-lasting 25-year maintenance plan to ensure the future of the site remains intact. We can also report that Bawdsey Transmitter Block is no longer on the heritage at risk register, which is fantastic news and all down to our superb restoration work.
