Holy Trinity Church is located in the heart of Cambridge City Centre. The project included extensive reordering of the interior of the Church, and a new extension to provide additional rooms for the church use.
The works within the Church included the removal of the Victorian pews, the replacement of the floor and old heating system with a new underfloor heating system and stone floor. A new commercial kitchen was provided along with a refurbished alter area and new joinery (provided by Coulson Joinery) to give the inside of the church and much needed facelift.
Externally, a single storey mid-century extension has been replaced with a new four storey building to provide 6 new meeting spaces and 4 additional WCs, 3 of which will be fully accessible. A lift was installed to gain access to all levels.
The four-storey extension was designed to be cantilevered over a public passageway that leads to the rear entrance of Marks and Spencer’s. During construction we were not allowed to close the walkway, therefore we had to design and construct a scaffold tunnel that would allow pedestrians to walk through the passageway safely whilst we constructed the four-storey extension.
