Residential Block External Refurbishments

The Objective

The Allaway Avenue site comprises three separate blocks of maisonettes at the top of the main parade of shops in the Paulsgrove area of Portsmouth.

The blocks were constructed in the late 1950s and no major works had been carried out to the exterior of the blocks for many years.

The Solution

The works that Mountjoy have carried out ensure that the building will remain structurally stable for many more years to come. Repairs carried out as part of the refurbishment included roofing, concreting, decoration to communal areas, new balcony partitions, re-asphalting of balconies and replacing a number of front doors.

The project was challenging due to the building being occupied and residents requiring access to balconies, walkways, stairwells.
