Following reports of a leak into the basement below, we came across an aged coal chute. Upon inspection, we noted clear sealant had been applied numerous time and glass infills replaced with timber, by others. The coat chute itself dated back to the 18th or 19th century, we agreed with the client it had reached its end of life and recommended replacing. Having agreed costs and acquired council permits, the pavement light was replaced entirely and left to cure. Works carried out in Soho, London.
