Full report 88 FLEET STREET MEETING NOTES
Installation of toughened glass on Floor 1. to get the window seating areas back into use. Completion due early March 2013
The main staircase recovered and brought back into use. Floor 1. stone paving work and replacement nosings. “Poor condition of repaired nosings on the bottom flights between the entrance and the first floor. Chris (on site operative) is to expose the nosing construction on several treads to determine whether repairs could be limited to the 75-100mm wide concrete repairs. Some repairs at least, e.g., half landing nosings, would require a wide repair due to the depression in the centre caused by wear.” Fleet Street Meeting Notes. February 2013
