The project involved the reinstatement of the whole interiors of this listed heritage church that was destroyed by a fire in March 2011.
The works included the construction of a new domed oak timber ceiling with gilded trims to the chancel, new glass screen to form a meeting room in the old organ chamber, traditionally plastered on lath within the chancel, construction of an organ gallery to create an entrance area, installation of built in joinery to the vestry, new wet underfloor heating system with radiators all powered by an air source heat pump, new stone floor finish on suspended pre cast floor beams, new separate build- ing to house the air source heat pump and buffer vessel, and complete new electrical and audio visual installation.
A new electricity supply and water mains was brought into the site through utility contractors. Also when constructing any of the external works (drainage, utilities), we had to work closely with local archaeologists and the church to ensure we did not un- cover any old graves. If any bones were found when digging, these would have to be carefully removed and given back to the church for the vicar to bless and re bury elsewhere in the church grounds.
