Positioned within the main courtyard of the World Heritage Site, the Stable Arch Columns make up part of one of the most architecturally important facades in the country.
The project was to cut back and reface the most severely weathered stones and to mortar repairs the stones with superficial damage.
A range of stone samples were presented to the architect Nick Cox of Nick Cox Architects and Hartham Park Bath was chosen as being the closest match to the original.
Upon completion of the stone replacement the new stones were painted with Copperas which is a traditional treatment for the Palace stonework and gives the Palace its warm ginger colour.
The mortar repairs were chosen to be the closest match for the original stone, patinated and colour matched to blend in with the surrounding stone.
