City Hall Dublin

The front and two side elevations are composed of Portland Stone, which were very heavily soiled. All of the Portland stone was cleaned using the Remmers Intachem range of products in conjunction with a steam wash. The cleaned fa├žade was then treated with a suitable water-repellent, also supplied by Remmers. Several months after the building was cleaned, there was found to be a problem with birds roosting in The Corinthian Capitals and defecating over the stonework. A number of bird deterrent products were tested, but the most suitable proved to be a netting system, which we fitted to all The Corinthian Capitals, using a Portland coloured net and stainless steel fittings, which is fairly invisible from the ground.
