Assembly Rooms, Bath – Case Study

Our work at the Bath Assembly Rooms required us to restore and replace the beautiful decorative plaster work and totally renew the ceilings. The strapwork had to be completely replaced whilst the ceiling coves and flat work were all plastered by hand. We took responsibility for re-creating the historic and beautiful interior for which we received the prestigious Plaisterers Trophy.

Anglican Chapel – Case Study

Requiring the use of traditional methods of lime skimming and plastering only, the restoration of this Victorian, Grade I listed chapel in the heart of Bristol was an extensive and incredibly challenging restoration project.
