Who Needed our Help?
MPC Plastering were honoured to be invited by Michelin star chef Michael Caines to help restore both the internal plastering and external rendering of a Grade II listed building: Lympstone Manor.
What did MPC do?
Lympstone Manor was undergoing a transformation from a historic stately home into a luxury hotel and restaurant. The owner was keen to ensure the work was carried out sensitively.
Externally, MPC were required to render over 500 metres of wall using a lime putty render, ensuring the finish was in keeping with the building’s traditional facade. Some of the exterior was in good condition so for these areas we used ThermaTech stone cleaning technology instead.
Internally, we carried out more than 600 square metres of lime plaster repairs which were needed throughout the original building. We also skimmed the entire interior of a new extension.
How our Client has Benefited
MPC Plastering are pleased to have assisted in the sympathetic restoration of Lympstone Manor, retaining the original charm and character of the building for future generations to enjoy. The modernised finish to the extension will also ensure the newer parts of the building will stand the test of time.
Why MPC were the Smart Choice
MPC Plastering were the natural choice to take on a project of this sensitivity due to our wealth of knowledge in heritage rejuvenation and our passion for restoring the south west’s historic buildings to their former glory.
With Lympstone Manor, we understood that we had to blend the old and the new on a grand scale, retaining the original features where possible. Expectations were high as this was to become a high-end resort. Our experienced heritage team were able to apply the necessary attention to detail to ensure an immaculate finish and a happy client.
