St Gregory’s Internal Renovation



Friday 15thJune 2018

This week Paul Ruffles (Lighting Design & Technology) who has designed the new lighting system for the Church met with the Electrical Contractor to review the installation and plan the way forward. This important phase of the project will commence shortly and the stripping out of the old cabling has now started.

The plaster repairs are ongoing with Thomas and Jake working their way around the Church – the majority of works to the North and South walls is now complete. Another specialist will start work on the masonry next week.

All the polystyrene and fibre boards from the Nave and Transepts have now been removed which has allowed the scissor bracing to be de-nailed. Work has begun in the Sacristy and the link corridor with the cupboards, shelving, sinks and work platforms removed.

Work will continue throughout next week on the rubbing back of ceiling boards and samples have been forwarded to a paint analyst who will this weekend endeavour to stain-match the timber boards and rafters.

We are currently on schedule with work to date.
