Halton House is Listed Grade II* and was built for Alfred de Rothschild and completed in 1883. The house has served as the officer’s mess for RAF Halton since 1918 and has continued to date largely with the interior unaltered.
Recently concerns were raised about the timber, wrought iron framed and lead covered belvedere on the roof. We were appointed to investigate the damage and then to prepare detailed working drawings for its dismantling repair and reconstruction. This work involved detailed analysis of the early steel framing, its repair off-site and the reconstruction on site to the same profiles as the original but incorporating further detailing for waterproofing and ventilation.
