This large scheme involves two retained facades and the creation of a new façade to match an existing historic one to the rear of the building. Following a detailed survey, the rear elevation of the building was removed, the floorplate expanded forwards by 3m and a new elevation built using approximately 100 m3 of Portland Whitbed stone. The new façade is a replica of the former historic one including all decorative details, which included 100 linear metres of Portland bottle balustrade. We also installed a new entrance ramp and steps to the Old Pathology Building. As part of our early works we carefully dismantled an existing archway to the side of the Old Pathology Building to allow large plant access to the site. The archway was stored securely off site and rebuilt as was, at the end of the project. In addition our team carried out extensive cleaning and restoration to the front and side elevations of the Old Pathology Building and to the front and end elevations of the Residential Staff Quarters Building.
