Murray Birrell were appointed to investigate premature deterioration of the EWIS System at Bankside Lofts, a prominent development near Tate Modern.

The EWIS System was suffering from premature ageing, severe discoloration and cracking in areas.


Murray Birrell carried out initial inspections and prepared reports. As a result, BRE were appointed to carry out a technical analysis of the rendering system as applied and it was found that a combination of variable thicknesses (between 3mm and 38mm), inappropriate substrate and poor finishing were the cause of the problems. A solution was formulated using a new Sto rendering system applied over the original combined with the repair and replacement of the substrate as required. A design and install solution was agreed to ensure 3-way warranties were in place for the design, supply and installation of the new EWIS overcoating system.
