Matthews and Son LLP is delighted to have been appointed as contract administrator and project manager by our client, Heath Street Baptist Church, to oversee the restoration of the north and south towers and main front façade of the church.
The construction of the church was originally completed in 1861 and is a good example of Victorian high gothic, and its enduring presence bears testament to the high levels of craftsmanship and quality of materials used in its construction.
However, the bath stone to the towers and front façade has deteriorated significantly over the last 161 years.
With the help of Permanens Ltd, who have significant experience in historic building conservation, we are currently on track to complete a circa 5-month repair programme in June. We hope that we are helping (in no small part) to preserve the church and its legacy, by ensuring it is in a sound condition, for future generations to appreciate.
