Ecclesiastical work: We are on the Approved List of Surveyors for three Dioceses, the work involves preparing 5 yearly Quinquennial reports giving the Parochial church council a report on the fabric of their church and recommendations for any repairs or maintenance that should be carried out in the next 5 years.
The majority of churches we look after are listed.
We guide the Church through the complicated process of getting the necessary approvals from the Local Planning Authority, English Heritage and the Diocese.
In addition we write the Schedules and Specifications for any work that is required, whether it’s rebuilding a boundary wall, or replacing the roof covering (often after the lead has been stolen, either with lead again, or with an alternative that can in certain circumstances be acceptable to English Heritage).
We have worked with Churches who want to remodel their interior, or wanted to introduce kitchen and toilet facilities (with or without mains drains).
And have extended or refurbished village and Church Halls.
