PROJECT TASKS AND CHALLENGES
Due to the extent of the damage to the building from the fire, a tin hat scaffold was installed prior to any works to the property to keep the elements out.
The fire caused some structural damage to the roof, so Cousins worked closely with the structural engineer to capture every detail.
The work comprised of complete strip out of the first floor, which exposed fire charred timber, damaged walls, including severe damage to wattle & daub wall which was part of the original listed building.
Structural work was carried out first to make sure the building was safe to work in and once this was completed the new roof was cut in to allow the felt & tiles to be installed.
Specialist plasterers carried out the installation of laths before the application of lime plaster to the walls to maintain its natural heritage to the approval of the conservation officer.
The ground floor of the pub had a new lath & plaster ceiling installed, as well as a new parquet floor installed along with repairs to the original wall panelling.
