The façades of the Rosewood Hotel were cleaned without scaffolding, using the Thomann-Hanry® unique façade gommage® system. A substantial amount of restoration work was then carried out, all under the direction of stone consultants Harrison Goldman.

In addition to the stone and granite repairs at the Rosewood Hotel façades, Thomann-Hanry® painted all external metalwork including railings, Juliet balconies and the main entrance gates.

The teams also investigated the causes of heavy staining, which was remedied and then removed by use of specialist poultices. Other works included the installation of 250 planters graced almost every window on the building.
