While our team prepare for a range of #masonry #conservation repairs to the exterior of St Mary’s Church in Nantwich, we couldn’t help snapping this shot of one of the fabulous timber rib vaulted ceilings! #thesymmetryabove We’ve completed a range of conservation works at St Mary’s over the years, but the architecture never fails to inspire us. #buildingconservation #masonryconservation
Last week our @historicengland stained glass trainee started with us in our Manchester stained glass studio - a perfect opportunity to help preserve stained glass skills for the future. As part of her welcome week, she came down to Chester to see our other studio and meet the rest of the team, so we took the opportunity to invited her to #ChesterRows where we have been carrying out a range of works for @cheshirewestandchestercouncil and Historic England, alongside @insallarch & @ramboll_uk. Here she is being shown round the historic #ChesterRows by our Conservation Manager @leebilson and site supervisor @sheridan1985 - along with Manchester lead @carlottacammelli and 3d glass design specialist @katewaddicorglass - we walked the rows looking at newly installed stallboards and conservation works, along the city walls down to the amphitheatre and Dee House… it wouldn’t have been a trip to Chester without popping into @chester_cathedral too, to look at some #TrenaCox windows too! . . . . . #stainedglass #training #skillstraining #conservationtraining #ontheconservationroad #heritageskills #skillsforthefuture #chester #buildingconservation #stainedglassconservation @heritagecrafts
Short: #throwbackthursday to our work to the spectacularly located Castell Dinas Brân - we’ve carried out a range of complex masonry conservation works on the castle over the years, but most recently our masonry team worked to preserve the remains of the former gatehouse. Long: Perched high on a prominent hilltop between #llangollen and World’s End sit the remains of Castell Dinas Brân. The visible ruins were probably built in the 1260s by Gruffydd Maelor II, a Prince of Powys Fadog, on the site of several earlier structures, including an Iron Age hillfort. The project at Dinas Bran presented both logistical challenges and very much tested our technical capabilities. Not only was the site at the top of a mountainous hill, the work which actually had to be carried out once we were up there would have been complex enough at ground level. Add to this the historic and ecological sensitivity of the site, our team really had our work cut out! But the team excelled as always! #buildingconservation #builtheritage #conservation #masonry #masonrycontractor #masonryconservation #conservationspecialist #visitwales @castlesofinsta @visitwales Epic photo by @davidedwardsphotographer
Chester is thriving in the sun today -as our teams continue to work on conservation works to the unique Rows with @insallarch, to assisting @charles_thomas2020 with their fire detection installations, and soon they’ll be working on major structural works to the grade I listed St Peter’s church… we can’t get enough of #Chester! #buildingconservation #maincontractor #principalcontractor #builthertige #chesterrows #heritagecontractor #masonrycontractor #heritage #cheshirelife @cheshirelifemag #visitchester @visitchesterandcheshire
Meanwhile our Plas Alltran project with @btp_architects is coming on leaps and bounds - lots still to do but it’s great to see it coming back to life after decades of dereliction, playing host to only fires, pigeons and decay. . . . . . . #buildingconservation #conservationrestoration #renovation #victorian #victorianarchitecture #builtheritage #welshheritage #welshcontractor #workinprogress #projectprogress #conservation #masonry #masonrycontractor #masonryconservation #timberconservation #socialhousing #socialhousingproject
