Sacred Heart Church – Westbury-on-Trym

Client: Diocese of Clifton Project value: £90k

‘Reversing the effects of weather and theft on a much-loved Bristol church.’

Our Brief

Roof repairs and weatherproofing on a Bristol church to stop water ingress where lead flashing had been stolen and roof coverings had deteriorated.

Works and special challenges

Lead was replaced, new roof coverings were installed and existing metal-framed windows were replaced due to their irreparable corrosion. The Nave was decorated throughout, requiring careful protection of the church organ as well as removal and repositioning of the pews.

All works were completed during the week. Before each weekend the pews were reinstated, all protection was removed and the church interior was left clean and tidy so Sunday services could continue throughout the contract.
