We worked with accredited conservation architect Frederick Gibson of ST Walker & Duckham to repair the mansion's historic laundry building, housed in the northeast pavillion of the outer courtyard and now used as the education centre. The contract was tendered principally as a roofing project, to replace the poorly detailed lead gutters with terne coated stainless steel and provide a new slate roof. However, as is typically the case, opening up revealed rather more work than originally anticipated; It is in the modest masonry repairs that the scope has broadened, requiring a greater degree of dismantling of both the decorative stone cornice and the blocking course to allow for the replacement of iron cramps with stainless steel and introducing improved stability.

In summary the works included:

  • Lead work
  • Terne coated stainless steel roofing
  • Slate roofing
  • Structural masonry repair
  • Stone indent repair
  • Carpentry
  • Re-pointing elevations where required
  • Conserving and repairing window joinery and glass
  • Decorating joinery
