St Astier recently won the prestigious Excellent Contractor Award 2016 for Newcastle University.

St Astier carried out numerous small projects however the main scheme was the works to the Armstrong Building.

The scope of works was to rake out the existing cementitious mortar pointing and re-point with a more sympathetic Natural Hydraulic Lime based mortar.  To prevent further issues with water ingress the existing defective perimeter pointing around the windows was removed and replaced with a burnt sand and linseed oil pointing.
