Bruce Castle RestorationPrint Case Study

 

Description:

Value: £80,000
Duration: 12 weeks
Quantity Surveyor: NPS
Architect: NPS


Bruce Castle is a Grade I listed 16th Century manor house in 20 acres of parkland, located in Haringey. The building is of great historical importance with William Compton - a member of Henry VIII’s court, constructing the oldest surviving parts of the building.

Bruce Castle opened as a Museum in 1906 and now houses local history collections relating to the borough of Haringey. Working for Haringey Council, under a framework agreement in the Conservation Division, we completed the roof repairs to Bruce Castle Museum.

Working under the strict guidance of English Heritage, due to the historical significance of the Castle, we were commissioned to remove, restore where possible and replace the slate roof covering on the main building of the castle. The project also involved significant works to improve the carbon efficiency of the building by introducing insulation and new felt covering into the existing ceiling.

Works were undertaken whilst Bruce Castle remained open and operational to both staff and members of the public.
