Brick replacement

Next to this major issue there were some spots around windows and other surfaces where some missing or damaged brick required rope access brick replacement works. Some spots, where the scaffold fixed in or touched the wall, the brickwork couldn’t be completed perfectly by the bricklayers. These spots could be repaired only when the scaffold is gone and these surfaces became accessible. As the bricklayers cannot work on the scaffold what is under dismantling, the completion had to be carry out after that the scaffold has gone. Sometimes, when any powered access solution is not possible anymore around the building, because of the landscaping or other restriction, these brick replacement works can be completed via rope access only.
