The Old Railway Station – Petworth

Project Details

The Old Railway Station in Petworth Is an award winning colonial railway station which has been converted into a unique hotel. This listed building was constructed in 1892 has 2 rooms in the station house and 6 rooms in the luxurious Edwardian Pullman Railway Carriages. External building and carriages moss and algae removal to prevent further paint damage occurring and to and make them look presentable to paying guests.

Showcase

Requirement

The main building and Pullman carriages had become covered in moss and algae which over time was affecting the quality of the paintwork. The beautiful building and carriages were almost completely covered in a green hue and did not look as they should do.

Solution

Purple Rhino were able to provide the client with a one stop solution.

After an initial survey was conducted it was discovered that guttering had become full and were over flowing thus creating part of the problem of algae growing on the external walls of the building. Huge trees in the immediate vicinity were also helping moss and algae’s to grow.

Main Building

By cleaning out the gutters and gently washing the painted woodwork with purified water the building was soon clean and in pristine condition.

Pullman Carriages

The special membranes on the roof were in need of a delicate and safe clean, using special techniques we soon had them looking like new again.

On Going Solutions

Due to the location of the building and carriages which are under the trees, the building needs cleaning every three months to keep it in tip top condition.

  • “Purple Rhino first sent us through an informative booklet about Industrial building cleaning in March 2013, I invited them down to survey our six storey building in Crawley, West Sussex known as The Atrium, they agreed to carry out a test sample FREE of charge and without obligation. The test results were extremely positive and it was agreed that the whole building façade and glass restoration service was needed to make the building look presentable once again. The works took them just over three weeks, and they gained access by using the building’s own cradle system and the use of Access Platforms, with minimal disruption to our staff and neighbours, the building now looks extremely good as it did when constructed. We will be using Purple Rhino for an agreed scheduled cleaning service to keep the building looking pristine at all times”
