Roman's Gate, Colchester
Client: Colchester Borough Council
Contractor: Anderson Group
Programme: 2 months
Wall re-alignment - we carefully took down the original curved brick wall and a structurally unsound pier before reinforced groundwork's were set and new wall and piers erected. All historic brick, Portland stone and brick copings were cleaned for re-use. In order to maintain the historic significance of the location, all plinth bricks and moulded quoins were hand made on site. New cast crosses which top the caps were integrated and fixed in situ. All works were completed in traditional lime mortar.
