RESTORATION OF NATIONAL TRUST PROPERTY
Working closely with The National Trust we were charged with the task to undertake the internal restoration, repair and alteration of parts of this Grade II* Listed house to enable the building to be restored to its former glory and the property open to the public once again following its closure in 1996.
The historic contents within the house consisted of many beautiful features including tapestries, paintings, silk wallpapers and magnificent fireplaces and initial works included forming protections to these to ensure they were preserved ready for specialist conservation later in the project. Structural repairs were then undertaken and conservation works carried out to the fabric of the building alongside adding modern features such as the provision of a disabled lift, new electrical and mechanical installations and fire prevention measures to meet the requirements of a building open to the public. The successful project was beautifully accomplished by our skilled site team and the building opened for visitors to admire once more much to the delight of all those involved with this historic property.
