This Grade 2 Victorian Almshouse required extensive external refurbishment including installation of new natural slated roofing, masonry and pointing repairs, window refurbishment and external decoration as well as general repairs to doors, fascias and rainwater goods.

The work required good communication and planning as the property was operating as a home for elderly people and so we had to understand the needs of the tenants. With the installation of scaffolding to all elevations we had to ensure that all works on site were conducted in a controlled and safe manner and that weekly operations were communicated to the management team and tenants throughout.

The completed project was marked with a visit by the patron who was a member of the Royal family.
