The company was commissioned by Historic Property Restoration Limited (HPR) which, itself, was commissioned by The National Trust, owners of the magnificent property, in conjunction with the architect to improve & protect the external fabric of the castle.
- To refurbish the external roof areas to the castle particularly focusing on areas of water ingress, various parapets & stone projections
- To replace and update the lead on the roof of the roof of the castle and encapsulating the stone slate, so that it complemented the fabric of the building
- To replace the roofing on the castle’s Grade II listed boathouse, situated north of the castle, where the metal sheet roofing was replaced and matched on a like for like basis
- To ensure that work undertaken matches its replacement on a like for like basis
- That the historic value of the castle remains intact
- The project was undertaken through the autumn & winter periods, which had obvious weather related constraints on the installation, however this was taken on board & the project was delivered to a very high standard.
- A regular blog was maintained by the National Trust detailing the on-going activities on site & chronicling the project at Wray Castle
