Services: Rising Damp Location: Chelsea, London
The iconic Saatchi Gallery is renowned as a showcase for contemporary art, with new, unknown artists sitting comfortable alongside their world-famous counterparts. All art needs to be stored and displayed in optimum conditions and so it was vital that LDS quickly diagnosed the problem, found its cause and presented a plan to cure it. In this instance, rising damp was apparent.
Following a thorough survey of the building, all areas of rising damp were identified and the damaged plaster removed. We then replaced it with waterproof plaster and left the area with as aesthetically perfect a finish as the rest of the gallery.
