#TBT I was driving through #Shropshire and called in at St Michael’s #Munslow today, where we completed a large project to conserve masonry, repair structure, and reroof. A decade of weathering since and it all looks as if nothing ever happened (that’s a good thing in my world!). It’s a crying shame that funding for rural church buildings like this has become so painfully sparse. They are some of our most precious and oldest buildings, every one a treasure trove of local history, and most with a congregation desperate to keep the building in use. Sadly, more and more amazing church buildings are slipping into disrepair. But on a lighter note, there’s a #music and #art festival starting here tomorrow, so if you’re around this part of the world, turn up! #churchbuilding #oldbuilding #heritage #history #skills #conservation #masonry
Surgical intervention work to piece the bones of Plas Alltran #Holyhead back together, ostensibly the first purpose-built doctor’s surgery in the UK. Work is progressing well alongside @btp_architects with initial focus on sorting through the debris to record and retain original architectural detailing, pick apart the burnt-out parts of the building, and address the condition of the underlying structure. Our next objective will be installing the new ground floor, whilst we strip the convoluted roof structure and reveal the condition of the timbers beneath. . #heritage #northwales #gogleddcymru #anglesey #ynysmôn #conservation #oldbuildings #victorian #architecture
This week we’ve mobilised to site at Plas Alltran in #Holyhead to take on the rehabilitation of this gem of a thing which was on the @the_victorian_society top ten list of buildings at risk. We completed a first phase of holding repairs here in 2021, and phase two will see the building fully pulled back from the brink. Originally built as a doctor’s surgery (ostensibly the first such purpose built building of its type) we’ll be sensitively repurposing it as four apartments with for #Anglesey County Council. . #conservation #oldbuilding #architecture #northwales #wales #heritage
Award-winning smiles! The #Chester Rows Regeneration project was awarded the Chair’s Special Award at the Civic Trust Awards yesterday! A pleasure to have delivered this outstanding #heritage project alongside @insallarch @ramboll_uk @cheshirewestandchestercouncil
The brick infill has been completely removed from the west elevation at #Northwich Library, in readiness for repair and replacement to the timber frame. This pic is one of three large gabled bays along the west passage. Extensive rot has given way to catastrophic structural failure so restoration is creeping in over conservation. The cantilevered scaffold beams you can see holding up the frame are offset with forty tonnes of scaffolding on the other side of the boarding up. It’s no mean feat! . #conservation #timber #oldbuilding #historicbuildingconservation #Cheshire #joinery #repair #picoftheday #restoration #skills
The 6th new stallboard on the rows is coming on nicely in #Chester - lovely results and work by the team. As always our thanks to all those in Chester for being so accommodating whilst our HAZ works continue. . . . . . . #supportinglocalbusiness #chester @chester_bid @cheshirewestandchestercouncil
