Located at the top of the cliff overlooking the Beirut port and the northern Lebanese coast, Sursock Palace has been severely affected by the blast on Aug. 4 2020.

The North facade (facing the port) has been detached from the rest of the building. Most of the woodwork is destroyed, and internal damages include large wall cracks, ceilings, walls and roof damages…

Due to the urgent need for structural consolidation, and the prevention of further collapse, a contracting company (EDRAFOR) chosen by the Sursock family, under the recommendation of BHI, and as per instructions from Michel Chalhoub (specialized engineer-restorer) supported the fragile North Facade with a steel structure.
