Here at Blair Gratton Architects we have years of experience of working with heritage buildings, experience which we can bring to your project.
Our project to construct a new meeting room, commercial kitchen, glazed reception/link and toilets to a thriving local church has just reached completion, before Christmas. An essential feature of the design is the reconstruction of an original stone arch as the main feature window of the meeting room – a process carried out under the conservation guidance of Simon Gratton.
The arch was part of the original porch, now demolished to make way for the new extension. It was recorded and taken down for its reconstruction shown in the photographs here as an integral piece of the new extension.
One of the photographs illustrates the presentation of the Anglo-Saxon Timparnum Stone – an ancient relic.
Our management of the project through complex archaeological processes, with the dedicated contracting team lead by Chris Charles has resulted in an excellent resource for the church ministry.
The new rooms are fully heated from underfloor pipework – well suited to the creche and meeting room criteria.
The annex was officially opened on the 18th December 2016.
