Restoration of York Mansion House

Posted on by

York Mansion House renovation-0584

 

The Mansion House is the home of the Lord Mayor of York, starting in 1725 this was the first purpose build residence of the Lord Mayor in the country. It was built as a home, and a place for the Lord Mayor to entertain city visitors, and also to house the wonderful civic collections. York’s famous Mansion House is built on sand, so therefore has no proper foundations and over time it has started to sink with cracks forming in various places throughout the building.

A York Construction Company were chosen to carry out the restoration project to restore and secure the building for a longer and safer future.York Mansion House renovation-0589

Here at The Site Book we are extremely privileged to be part of this restoration project in supplying many of our products. As shown in the picture, our Antinox Flame Retardant Protection Board has been used to protect floors, doors and stair handrails. Along with our Grey PVC Tape the Antinox has been laid with care and attention to create an amazing neat tidy finish. As well as the Antinox and tape, our Antimar Bubble Wrap was used to protect the gold edged pillars.

Special thanks goes out to Mr Martin Butcher, chairman of the York Camera Club, for some outstanding pictures of our products in use at the Mansion House.

Water_Spray_Fire_ExtinguisherHow often do you have fire safety checks scheduled for your site? We supply various types of fire extinguishers along with fire blankets and essential fire alarms. We have been concentrating on fire safety as our extinguishers have recently been of high interest to our customers and since they are required by law it benefits you to double check you have the correct safety checks in place. It is very important to choose the correct type of extinguisher for your site in order to prevent injury in the unfortunate event of an actual fire and to pass safety inspections. Be aware that replacements may be needed if the extinguishers have been tampered with; are damaged; the ring pins are not in place; the seals are not in tact or the product is simply too old. Our 3 most popular extinguishers have been:

Water – For wood/paper/textile & solid material, this is used to cool burning material below the temperature as which is starts to burn.

Co2 – Used to smother the burning material so air is excluded. For use against liquid and electrical fires. This extinguisher is also popular for the lack of mess it leaves behind.

Powder – For solids, flammable liquids, flammable gasses and electrical fires. A popular choice for being so versatile and fast acting although the mess left behind is often a drawback.

 

As far as janitorial duties go, we can additionally provide vacuum cleaners and products as simple as surface cleaners and paper towels, although our kitchen appliances do not end there!
